Manchester United Fans Can't Believe Marouane Fellaini Might Actually Be Leaving

Manchester United Fans Can't Believe Marouane Fellaini Might Actually Be Leaving

Galatasaray sporting director Cenk Ergun has confirmed reports suggesting Fellaini is close to signing a deal to move to Istanbul, with a deal believed to be close to being confirmed.

Fellaini's move to Turkey will fuel rumours that United have a midfielder lined-up to join the club in the coming days, with Chelsea's Nemanja Matic one of the leading names on Mourinho's wanted list.

Rashford and Mkhitaryan also both had decent shots for Man United in the opening 30 minutes of football, but the score remained goalless as Valerenga managed to defend their lines on a number of occasions.

Just minutes into the second half, Lukaku thumped home a powerful header to double the visitors' lead, and in doing so confirmed another strength of his which will make United more risky as the game goes on this season - aerial ability.

After that United head back to England to face Sampdoria at Old Trafford before the Super Cup final against Real Madrid on 8 August. He made 42 appearances last season, averaging statistics of 1.9 tackles, 1.1 interceptions and 1.7 clearances per match. Ahead of a World Cup year, Fellaini knows that he needs regular playing time if he wants to make the star-studded Belgium squad for next year's mundial in Russian Federation. When a player wants very, very much, the chance is bigger. He is too important to me.

Mourinho said: "I could answer in many different ways but I am not going to lose my hair to speak about Antonio's comments".

"It's nice. Strikers like to score goals", Mourinho said of Lukaku's strike.

Of course, Jose could also just be playing hardball in order to get more money for Marouane in order to buy another player perhaps but it's more likely that the manager will stick to his words.

United wouldn't have won the Europa League without his goals last season - and wouldn't be in the Champions League as a effect - and his deflected header at the end of the first half emphasised his importance yet again.
