Manchester United and Chelsea linked with Fellaini, buyout clause revealed – report
Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly on alert after BBC Sport revealed that Everton talisman Marouane Fellani has a buyout clause.
Fellaini, 25, has been in fine form for Everton this season and has caught the eye of some of the Premier League’s biggest clubs as the Toffees maintain their excellent start to the season.
BBC report that Fellaini apparently has a buyout clause believed to be more than £22m – a relatively small fee for the likes of Chelsea.
Fellaini has scored nine goals this season, and Everton would be averse to any potential transfer. If that buyout clause is met, Everton would be in for a hefty windfall that would allow David Moyes to strengthen the squad in other areas. Potentially, a win-win for all parties.
With Chelsea almost certainly not renewing Frank Lampard’s contract in the summer, the 2012 Champions League winners will be keen to fill that hole in midfield. Manchester United have also been keen on finding a midfield powerhouse, but have been linked with the soon-to-be out of contract Lampard.
After securing the services of Eden Hazard in the summer, as well as Kevin De Bruyne & Thibaut Courtois, some of the best Belgian talent is now at Stamford Bridge.
Could Fellaini join his compatriots at Chelsea?
