Arsenal in shock Marouane Fellaini move with free transfer talks due

Arsenal in shock Marouane Fellaini move with free transfer talks due

Marouane Fellaini is a man who divides opinion among Manchester United supporters.

French media outlet Foot Mercato, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Gunners will meet with the Belgium international's representatives this week to discuss a potential transfer. While United want to sign him to a new contract―manager Jose Mourinho is a fan of the Belgian―the former Everton man has made a decision to keep his options open as he wants to be a regular starter.

Having finished sixth in the league, Arsenal did manage to qualify for the Europa League and it now looks certain that they're the club who have been in talks with the United midfielder.

Paul Hirst of The Times reported on Monday afternoon that Arsenal's interest in Fellaini is genuine and he is more likely to move to the Emirates Stadium than put pen to paper on a new deal at United.

The Selecao face Austria next Sunday in their only other friendly before their opening game against Switzerland on Sunday 17 June. Kenny Dalglish yesterday encouraged fans not to boo their ex-hero, who played more than 200 games for the Reds.

However, the Arsenal board reportedly believes that 30-year-old does not fit the club's style of play and is also seen as too expensive due to purported salary demands of £120,000 per week and signing-on fee.

Fellaini has been selected in Belgium's World Cup squad and the Red Devils had hoped he would sign his extension before he travelled to Russian Federation for the World Cup.

The Manchester United midfielder is out of contract this summer and has so far rejected two contract offers to remain at Old Trafford.
