Man United 'fear' losing disgruntled Fellaini for free

Manchester United are still hopeful Marouane Fellaini will sign a new contract before the season is out and will not consider a January sale despite the Belgian having recently rejected an improved deal.

That's according to the Daily Star, who claim the Belgium global is unsatisfied with the new contract he's been offered at Old Trafford. However, United have far from given up hope of persuading Fellaini to commit to an extension with the club he joined in the summer of 2013.

Fellaini's current deal expires at the end of the season but no agreement has been reached yet to keep the 29-year-old at Old Trafford.

The sensational suggestion of Arsenal's interest will come as unwelcome news for Besiktas who had been tracking Fellaini for some time.

Arsenal are watching Marouane Fellaini's situation at Manchester United.

However, he re-established himself under Louis van Gaal and has taken his game to a new level under Jose Mourinho who has praised the player's strength of character.

United playing hardball means that he is likely to remain at Old Trafford until June, dissuading fears of an early departure.

Fellaini has emerged as a key player under Mourinho and the United manager was keen to praise the midfielder for making himself available in the 1-0 defeat to Chelsea before the worldwide break.

That said, Jose Mourinho has repeatedly showed how much he values Fellaini in his squad.
