Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini has reportedly told the club that he will not be signing a new deal.
Fellaini’s current contract ends at the finish of the campaign, and he has so far stalled over signing an extension, despite The red Devils being keen to prolong his stay for at least another season.
But, the Belgian is now free to consider terms with other teams and reports suggests that he has told head coach Jose Mourinho that he wants to leave United in the summer.
He has made just four starts across all tournaments for United this term and is believed to be fed up with waiting for his opportunity in the first team.
The 30-year-old has been linked with a transfer to Turkey, while earlier Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain were credited with an interest in the player.
The Belgians star joined United in 2013 and has gone on to make 146 appearances for the club across all tournaments.
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann is reportedly asking for wages of £400,000 a week to join Manchester United ahead of Barcelona.
The 26-year-old was believed to be closing in on the move to Old Trafford last summer, only to perform a U-turn and decide to remain in the Spanish side after Atletico saw their transfer ban upheld.
The Red Devils alternatively signed Romelu Lukaku. However, they have held an interest in Griezmann and are believed to be examining the possibility of a January move for the Frenchman after Diego Costa’s move back to Atletico.
Barcelona are still frontrunners to sign Griezmann, however, their £146m services of Philippe Coutinho means that a January move is impossible and a summer switch could also be unlikely.
The footballer himself prefers to remain in Spain. However stories have now claimed that he would consider moving to Old Trafford if he was offered £400,000 a week in salaries, which would make him the highest-paid footballer in the division.
The Red Devils have reportedly offered the Frenchman wages of £290,000 a week at this stage. However, Griezmann is holding out for an even more lucrative contract.
Griezmann’s release clause now stands at €200m (£177.2m), though that will halve €100m (£88.6m) on July 1.
