Man United in talks with 29-year-old Belgian star

MANCHESTER UNITED are in talks with Marouane Fellaini over a contract extension.

Fellaini has entered the final year of his current deal at Old Trafford. An opening offer has been made to the 29-year-old midfielder.

Jose Mourinho personally urged club chiefs to tie him down to fresh terms.

Fellaini is yet to start a game this season but inspired United to victory as a substitute in the Champions League against Basel on Tuesday.

Mourinho has publicly praised the big Belgian for what he brings to the team.

He said: “I have always thought of Fellaini as a player with special qualities. You always want a player like that in your team or squad.”

United have a policy of only offering one-year deals to players over the age of 30.

Fellaini, who joined from Everton in 2013, reaches the milestone in November.

According to the Mirror, Fellaini is looking for a longer-term contract but is enjoying his spell under Mourinho’s management.
