Manchester United determined to keep Marouane Fellaini despite rejected contract

Fellaini has instead knocked back the offer of another contract extension, it is claimed, and the Red Devils now have their work cut out convincing him to turn down lucrative wages and more regular playing time elsewhere.

According to the Italian publication, Arsenal are keen on signing Man United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

That Marouane Fellaini's status at Manchester United would be such a talking point, even six months ago, shows the progress he's made with fans.

Despite his increasing importance to the side, the club have yet to make him an acceptable contract offer, meaning that he can leave on a pre-contract deal for nothing this summer if an agreement isn't reached. Inter Milan and Besiktas are also interested.

Residents in the capital, more than 300 kilometers (186 miles) away, felt tremors and said their buildings shook. While no casualties have been reported yet, seven people have been lightly wounded, with over 40 people rescued.

Galatasaray have a long-standing interest in Fellaini but a host of foreign and Premier League clubs are expected to jostle for his signature in the event Mourinho fails to persuade him to stay at United beyond a fifth season.

But Moyes successor Louis Van Gaal and Mourinho both valued him for his aerial power and ability to unsettle defences, often sending him on as a substitute to change the course of a game.

The 29-year-old's days at Old Trafford seem to be numbered despite Jose Mourinho's public admiration of the player.

Pogba is now closing in on a return - and could feature against Newcastle on Saturday - which will limit Fellaini's chances of more starts.
