Man Utd reluctant to loan out Marouane Fellaini

United want permanent Fellaini exit

Manchester United are said to prefer the permanent sale of midfielder Marouane Fellaini rather than loaning him out for the remainder of the campaign.

According to The Mail, the Belgian international is on the fringes of the first-team under Jose Mourinho, and could be offloaded in the New Year.

West Ham United and Sunderland are both reported to be lining up temporary deals for the anchorman, but the Red Devils would prefer receiving a straight-cash offer for his services.

Fellaini has been the subject of recent criticism from the club's faithful after his mistake in the box cost his side valuable points against Everton last weekend.

The 29-year-old has earned 11 appearances in the top flight, with three of them coming from the substitutes' bench.
