Fellaini wants United stay

Manchester United

Marouane Fellaini is reportedly ready to turn his back on a January move to China and tax-free wages of £250,000 a week.

The Manchester United midfielder was first made aware of the Far East fortune on offer during the summer.

Fellaini has two years left on his present £120,000-a-week deal and has been working hard to win the trust of boss Jose Mourinho.

The 29-year-old remains hopeful he can yet play himself towards a new two-year extension.

United are currently hedging their bets on that score, with a number of their stars facing an uncertain future.

Old Trafford insiders have told sportinastorm.com the club would be prepared to listen to offers if they can recoup the £28m they paid to Everton back in 2013.

But it’s understood the Belgium international isn’t interested in playing his football outside of Europe at this stage in his career – despite the riches on offer to him.

And sources close to the player insist he won’t be short of offers if he is forced to move on next summer.
