Manchester United are in discussions with an unnamed Chinese club over the potential sale of Marouane Fellaini.
The Belgian agreed a two-year extension to his terms last summer that ties him to the club until 2020. United had told the player he was under no pressure to leave but that they would be open to a serious offer to sign him. Unlike the domestic transfer window, which closes on Thursday, the Chinese one is open until next month.
Fellaini was David Moyes’s sole major signing in the summer 2013 window and has struggled to be accepted by some United fans. José Mourinho oversaw Fellaini’s contract extension but the Belgian has struggled for game-time under the Portuguese’s temporary successor, Ole Gunnar Solskjær.
Fellaini is currently injured with a calf problem and has not featured since the 2-0 FA Cup win over Reading on 5 January.
