Is Marouane Fellaini About To Trade Man Utd For Arsenal?

According to Foot 365 journalist Patrick Juillard, there is serious interest on the part of the Gunners in signing the Belgian on a free transfer.

Hours after the blue half of Manchester was rocked by the news that Leroy Sane had been axed from Germany's World Cup squad, the red portion of the city has been dealt an natural disaster of its own by The Sun's revelation that Arsenal are "set to hold talks with Manchester United ace Marouane Fellaini this week".

Metro claim he has already rejected two offers from United and that the Gunners will now meet his representatives this week.

Before United's campaign had ended, Jose Mourinho was confident that Fellaini was close to signing an extension. To get the latest soccer news, text "SPORTS" to 22840.

Fellaini, who made his name at Everton, is now away with Belgium's World Cup squad and is not expected to make any decisions over his future until he returns from Russian Federation next month.

The 30-year-old moved to Old Trafford in 2013 and has struggled to fit in ever since, as David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Mourinho asked him to play as more of a traditional central midfielder. He also wanted a significant pay-rise.

Arsenal are on a tight budget this summer after spending big on Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang last season.

However, if they are found guilty, chances are that Fellaini may not move to Italy and would rather stay in England to continue his career.
