Marouane Fellaini will complete his transfer from Everton to Manchester United on Monday as the transfer window comes to a close, according to Sport Werald.
Fellaini played 90-minutes for Everton on Saturday in a 0-0 draw with Cardiff City, which is to be his final performance for the toffees before being re-united with David Moyes at Manchester United.
The transfer fee that both Roberto Martinez and Bill Kenwright at Everton have agreed is in the region of £23.5million
Manchester United have had a very mixed transfer window thus far, with failed bids and interest for Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas, De Rossi and Ander Herrara all turned down.
Both David Moyes and CEO Ed Woodward are continuing to work hard on bringing in players to strengthen the depth of the squad, pointing out that central midfield is the main area in which we need to strengthen.
Fellaini is hoped not to be the only signing coming into Old Trafford before the transfer window shuts at 11pm BST on Monday night, the club still hope that an agreement can be made to buy Leighton Baines too, with current reserve left-back Alexander Buttner going on loan to Celtic.
Speaking before the Liverpool game, David Moyes said:
“I don’t know how busy it’s going to be but it’s a busy football market, it might be busy in the next few days and I hope we do a little bit of business but I couldn’t guarantee that.”
Fellaini will be a great addition to the squad, especially in midfield alongside Michael Carrick. To many, this draws a close on the saga that has been between Manchester United and Everton all summer, with no doubt that Marouane Fellaini will look forward to the challenge of the Premier League title and Champions League football.
The transfer is subject to finalised fees and add-ons being agreed and a medical which will take place at the AoN training centre and Bridgewater Hospital on Monday.
