Jose Mourinho Reportedly Wants a Marouane Fellaini Extension Done Soon



Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho is known for typically wanting to get his transfer business done early in the summer, each and every summer. With the long term future of Marouane Fellaini not finalized, it’s another contract that Mourinho would like to see sign, sealed and delivered much sooner rather than later.

So reports ESPN FC who write that: “Jose Mourinho is keen for Manchester United to tie up a new contract for Marouane Fellaini before the end of the year.”


The article also adds: “Mourinho wants to keep the Belgium international at Old Trafford” and that “the former Everton man is happy at United.”

Fellaini is an extremely polarizing player, even among his own fan base. Much of that strong feeling is deserved, although some of that is not. Fellaini was the only major summer transfer window addition of David Moyes in 2013, and therefore has long remained associated with the Scotsman.

Given how Moyes’ managerial tenure at United was the mother of all disasters, you can understand why many United supporters could still be clinging to some negative feelings there.

Mourinho maintains that Maroune Fellaini, as well as Nemanja Matic, are currently in the best form of their lives.


“At this moment Matic and Fellaini are in the best form that I have ever seen them in. I have never seen Matic play so well and I’ve never seen Fellaini play so well,” Mourinho just said this week.

The Belgian’s current deal will expire at the end of the season if the club doesn’t reach a new agreement by the start of 2018. The attacking midfielder was coveted by Turkish side Galatasaray this summer.
