International

Fellaini: United Rumours Are Waffle

Marouane Fellaini has distanced himself from reports linking him to Manchester United.

Since the moment Fellaini’s former boss at Everton, David Moyes, was announced as the new manager at United, the Belgian international was said to be on his way to Old Trafford too.

United are certainly in the market for a combative midfielder following the retirement of Paul Scholes, and due to the chronic illness of Darren Fletcher.

Some pundits doubt Fellaini’s pedigree, while others argue that he does have the requisite quality to succeed as a Red Devil.

But the player himself suggests that the debates are academic at this stage, when his “destiny” is simply Everton.

"He [Moyes] got a good offer and I understood why he accepted it," said Fellaini, according to Sky Sports.

"But he never told me he planned to take me to United. Rumours are part of football and I take them with a pinch of salt.

"Everyone likes that question about Manchester United, but I know of nothing.

"My destiny is with Everton, it's as simple as that.

"We're talking about one of the biggest clubs in England, the framework is in place and the manager's departure doesn't change anything.

"I do miss playing in the Champions League but we deserved to win a place in it this year.

"We were unlucky Spurs had a good season as well. But it's clear I am very happy where I am. Everything else is waffle."
