Some bad news for United, Arsenal and, let’s not forget, Everton fans. French newspaper L’Equipe is reporting that the Blue’s talismanic midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be a Chelsea player by the end of the week.
The report, which has also made the BBC sports news , is that that the 25-year old will sign a five-year deal with the club, for a fee of £22m. He will earn £4m a year.
It has been widely reported that the player has a £22 million transfer trigger fee and it seems that Chelsea are prepared to meet it.
Fellaini has made a total of 155 appearances for Everton, scoring 29 goals. His form this year has been scintillating.
Arsene Wenger is known to be an admirer but it seems unlikely that Arsenal would match the asking price. With the move seemingly imminent will Fergie make his move now?
