Marouane Fellaini: Manchester United could sell midfielder

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been warned he might have to leave Old Trafford to make Belgium’s Euro 2016 squad.

Belgium coach Marc Wilmots has admitted to being “annoyed” by international players who do not play regularly for their club sides and the 27-year-old Fellaini fits into that bracket.

The former Everton man has started just one Premier League game all season and two in the League Cup and was ruled out of Belgium’s recent friendly win over Italy and the cancelled match against Spain due to injury.

Wilmots though wants the players from his number one ranked squad playing ahead of next summer’s tournament.

“A player who does not play for his club is annoying for a coach,” he told Le Soir.

“A player who does not play for his club is annoying for a coach.

“Fellaini could play to support the attack, as the number six. He has very good technique, very good ability to track back and recover. Maybe he will try to find a new challenge in January, if it is possible.”
