Marouane Fellaini hints at a move to Manchester United

Marouane Fellaini has hinted that he would like to follow David Moyes over to Manchester United.

The Belgian has credited David Moyes with making the players who he is today and Fellaini may well follow the his previous manager to Old Trafford.

Fellaini has previously spoken of his desire to move away from Everton to further his career, but now he could have his wish granted by moving to the Barclays Premier League Champions.

Speaking with the Sunday Mirror, he said:

“If I’m leaving Everton, I say if, it will depend on lots of factors.

“I only want to go to a club where the manager really wants me.

“In 2008, Everton did everything to convince me, especially David Moyes. He made me the player I am now.”

“I’m happy with my season, although I didn’t play in my best position.

“I’m not a number 10. David Moyes predicts my future as a defensive midfielder, but due to a lack of offensive power, he plays me up front.

“In the future I want to play as a six or an eight. From there, I can create danger and score goals.”

The guy is a talent and he is a versatile player. Moyes will obviously know everything about him, and it will be interesting to see if he will bring him to Old Trafford. We know there is a £23 million release clause in his contract and that is a good price for his age and experience in the Premier League.

We need more presence in the midfield, and Fellaini would clearly bring that with his power and height. The guy wants to develop into a position that we need in our team, and that is a more box to box midfielder. We need someone who can protect the back four, but also go and score 10-12 goals a season.

Moyes flew to Belgium to convince Fellaini how much he wanted him, and even though he was only 20 years old, he paid £15 million. Funnily enough Man Utd tried to sign Fellaini early in his youth days, but he wanted to stay in Belgium and establish himself with Standard Liege.

I would like a couple of midfielders to arrive this summer in the center of midfield. Fellaini would be a big signing, but Moyes has a great eye for talent, and even tried to sign Michael Essien when he was at Bastia for Everton.
