Much was expected of Marouane Fellaini when he first made the switch from Goodison Park to Manchester United back in the summer of 2013. Since then however, the 29-year-old Belgian international has largely failed to set the world alight whilst operating at Old Trafford, as many initially hoped for upon his early introduction at the club.
The former Everton midfielder endured a brief, yet albeit eventful performance to forget last time out against the Toffees of course, as he served only to concede an avoidable penalty with but a few minutes left to play of the recent weekend fixture. Everton subsequently levelled the scores from the spot-kick, costing Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils all three points in the process.
Several Manchester United fans now want Fellaini out of their club…
Ask yourself this..
Do you really want to bring up children in a world where Trump is president & Fellaini can make 100 apps for Man Utd?

…and if Paul Scholes’ comments on the situation are to have any effect with the January transfer window already fast approaching…
Scholes: "Van Gaal & Jośe keep picking Fellaini. He can't pass, can't dribble & can't shoot. He's slower than a tortoise going backwards."

…perhaps the Belgian international will in-fact leave his current employers for a new club this winter…
If Mkhitaryan or Martial did what Fellaini did you wouldn't see them in the matchday squad for months.

Roy Keane is another ex-Manchester United pro who is failing to see what Marouane Fellaini really offers to the team…
"An injured Bastian Schweinsteiger is better than a fully fit Marouane Fellaini."

…and as the former Everton man is still yet to win over the vast majority of the Old Trafford faithful…
Fellaini nowhere near good enough for United, never has been. We need a player with finesse and composure. He fits neither.

…maybe this potential move would indeed benefit the Red Devils in the long-run…

With Marouane Fellaini = 34.4%
Without Marouane Fellaini = 60.8%

With the January transfer window waiting patiently on the horizon…
January is about getting rid of deadwood rather than bringing in for #United Mourinho better channel his inner car salesman to flog Fellaini

…Manchester United fans seemingly can’t wait to see the back of Marouane Fellaini!
Remember this: If Fellaini can be a professional footballer and play 100 games for Man Utd, anything is possible. Never give up.
