Is Marouane Fellaini About To Trade Man Utd For Arsenal?

French TV show Foot 365 have stated talks will soon be opened with the giant player - who headed in an injury time victor during April's previous meeting between the Red Devils and Gunners.

Hours after the blue half of Manchester was rocked by the news that Leroy Sane had been axed from Germany's World Cup squad, the red portion of the city has been dealt an quake of its own by The Sun's revelation that Arsenal are "set to hold talks with Manchester United ace Marouane Fellaini this week".

Signing Fellaini is something Gunners fans likely wouldn't approve of, but on a free transfer, there's no real risk involved with the deal.

For Arsenal manager Unai Emery, the Spaniard is said to have already contacted the midfielder, who he reportedly wanted in January during his Paris Saint-Germain days.

Arsenal's head of recruitment Sven Mislintat appears to agree with Emery regarding Fellaini's appeal and the 30-year-old will be looking to improve on the one-year contract, worth £80,000-a-week, that he has turned down at Manchester United.

The player's contract at Old Trafford is set to expire on 1 July, and that means he's free to discuss terms on a move elsewhere.

Chosen by Roberto Martinez in the Belgian World Cup this summer, Fellaini is apparently seeking a £120,000 a week contract at Arsenal, plus a significant signing-on fee. PSG have also been linked with the imposing midfield general.
