Fellaini off to Trabzonspor?

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has held initial discussions with Trabzonspor ahead of his potential switch to the Super Lig 1 this summer.

The Belgium international has been in and out of Jose Mourinho's team this season, and his United career could be up in the summer despite earning a one-year extension on his previous deal.

According to The Star, via Turkish source Takvim, the 29-year-old has made contact with club president Muharrem Usta, who is eager to recruit a new striker and midfielder during the summer transfer window.

The Trabzon-based club are due to celebrate their 50th anniversary later in the year. and they are eager to make the moment memorable by offering a strong challenge for the Turkish league title.

Fellaini has been made the scapegoat for United's decline in recent seasons, and the club could be willing to accept a cut-price deal for his signature rather than lose him for nothing in a year's time.

The former Evertonian has made just 17 league starts this term with Mourinho opting to play the experienced Michael Carrick alongside Ander Herrera at the heart of the midfield.
