Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is in ongoing contract talks with the Red Devils after receiving an initial contract offer that has fallen short of his demands.
While Fellaini is highly regarded by manager manager Jose Mourinho, the former Everton man is pushing 30, and United’s policy is said to involve offering rolling one-year contracts for players at such an age.
The midfielder is holding out for more, and it is reported in the Daily Mail that he has been “courted by clubs from Italy and Turkey”.
He started his first game of the season against Everton, as the Red Devils beat Ronald Koeman’s side 4-0.
Fellaini will be free to talk to clubs in January about a free transfer with his current deal with United set to run out in June.
Man United Devils has rounded up the best tweets from disgruntled Man United fans who clearly think Fellaini should take what’s on the table.
I want him to stay but his agent needs to realise he's not a starter because fellaini himself knows he's not pogba

Fellaini that we're still wondering what he's doing at our club is refusing to accept contract offer. The audacity and effrontery.
