Marouane Fellaini Hints it Would Cost Manchester United €50Million to Replace Him

Marouane Fellaini has hinted that it would cost €50million to replace him if he were to leave Manchester United.

The Belgian midfielder currently has just four games left as a Red Devils player as his contract at the club gets set to expire in the summer.

So far, there has been no movement in negotiations between the player and club, but Jose Mourinho’s recent positive comments about the situation show United want to keep him.

As for Fellaini, he knows United made a mistake not extending his deal last season and now they’re left with a problem.

Speaking to Sport Magazine, Fellaini said: “The entire staff is doing everything I can to stay. Now I am in a strong position, especially since Mourinho has stated that he wants to keep me.

“Last year I went to the coach and I said that I wanted a new contract. I then had a second meeting, but I will not ask it ten times. Afterwards I became important for the team.. and a good player costs at least 50 million euros. The club knows that they went wrong there. “

Would it take €50m to replace Fellaini though? He may have scored the winner against Arsenal at the weekend and be a regular option for Mourinho either from the start or off the bench, but he’s not one of the best midfielders in Europe and he may be valuing himself a bit too high with these comments.

United fans – are you confident of keeping Fellaini at the club beyond the summer?
