Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is said to have agreed on a summer deal with Turkish powerhouse Besiktas, according to reports in Turkey.
The 30-year-old Belgium international is running out of contract at Old Trafford and is set to leave the club on a free deal at the end of the season having declined to sign an extension with Red Devils.
According to reports from the Turkish media outlet Fotomac , Fenerbahce have managed to beat league rivals Galatasaray to Fellaini’s signature and will see the Belgian join up with the team after the FIFA World Cup in Russia.
French giants Paris Saint-Germain were said to be in the running for Fellaini as well.
Fellaini and Manchester United have been involved in renewal negotiations but the talks have thus far been unsuccessful. The midfielder is said to have given his nod to Fenerbahce and even put pen to paper on a pre-contract agreement.
Jose Mourinho is a huge admirer of Marouane Fellaini who’s been out of action since picking up an injury against Tottenham last month. The Belgian underwent a knee surgery and will be out of action for up to two months.
Mourinho made no secret of his desire to extend Fellaini’s deal and even joked that he told Belgian to sign a new contract before the true extent of his knee injury was known.
Manchester United travel to Huddersfield this weekend and can be found at 1.44 (4/9) betting odds to record much needed three points and bounce back from their 1-0 defeat at Newcastle United last time out.
