Manchester United closing in on agreeing new bumper contract with Marouane Fellaini

Manchester United closing in on agreeing new bumper contract with Marouane Fellaini

Old Trafford manager Jose Mourinho has asked the club to secure the Belgium global to a new deal along with fellow midfielder Ander Herrera, but Fellaini does not want to compromise on financial terms.

The Belgian has enjoyed a startling run of form that has seen him go from public enemy No 1 to a fan favourite at Old Trafford.

Nemanja Matic believes Manchester United have enough "great players" to cope without Paul Pogba, with Marouane Fellaini shining so far. Free to discuss terms with other clubs in January, he is understood to be ready to canvas options elsewhere should United fail to offer a salary that reflects his importance within Mourinho's squad.

The Sun claims that the 29-year-old wants as much as £130,000 per week, but United could be reluctant to pay that sort of money to a player who is soon to turn 30.

The Belgian already has four goals and one assist for the Red Devils this season and after an impressive brace against Crystal Palace last weekend, Fellaini was justifiably named in WhoScored's statistically based Premier League team of the month.

"I've worked with him and he's a great lad to train because he does exactly what you want, and hasn't let the fans bother him because he's always had the support of the players and the coaches".

"He doesn't have the credit that he deserves, so I'm sure that he will this season show all his quality".

"It's nice to have him in the team because he can defend, on long balls he is strong and he's always risky in attack".

United resume Premier League duties after the global break away to Liverpool on Saturday October 14 (12.30pm).
