Following Nemanja Matic’s arrival, Marouane Fellaini will look to leave Manchester United in January

According to reports from the Daily Mail, Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini will be looking to leave Old Trafford in January.

Ever since his arrival to Manchester United from Everton during the summer of 2013, Marouane Fellaini has been a very divisive figure among the club faithful and fans of the Red Devils are still unable to make their mind up as to whether or not they like the Belgian international.

Due to his languid style as well as many disciplinary problems, Fellaini has not impressed United fans who expect free flowing football and as a result, he has been subject to a lot of criticism over the years.

Whatever the fans think of Fellaini though, he has been a crucial figure for managers Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho over the years and the 29-year-old played a key role in helping United claim the EFL Cup as well as the Europa League titles last season.

Mourinho is clearly a big fan of Fellaini’s abilities but with the Portuguese boss having signed Nemanja Matic from Chelsea in a huge £40million deal recently, the future of the ex-Everton midfielder has been put into doubt.

There has been speculation in recent times that Fellaini is wanted by Turkish side Galatasaray but such a move is unlikely to be coming into fruition this summer.

Now in an update to Fellaini’s future, the Daily Mail have gone on to reveal that the ex-Standard Liege man is open to staying put at Old Trafford for the next few months to see how often he features for the club and if his chances are limited, the midfielder will make a move away from Old Trafford in January.

Fellaini is currently in the final year of his contract at United and he will be able to hold discussions with clubs from abroad when the January transfer window comes around.

The towering star would surely like to be playing regular first team football during the World Cup year and it seems very likely that he will not remain a United player for too long.
