Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has agreed a shock move to Turkey, according to reports on Wednesday.

The Belgium international has been linked with an Old Trafford exit since the summer as he has entered the final four months of his contract.

Recent reports have suggested that Fellaini is looking for a new challenge and will turn down any offer from United.

The 30-year-old has found himself behind talented young midfielder Scott McTominay in the pecking order recently, possibly accelerating his decision to leave.

According to the Turkish outlet Fotomac, Besiktas have reached an agreement with the former Everton man’s representatives after several rounds of talks.

Jose Mourinho recently stated that he believes Fellaini wants to stay in Manchester, but couldn’t guarantee it.

“I’m happy with his contribution, he is being a great professional for us,” Mourinho stated.

“I know he wants to stay with us, he knows I want him and the club wants him but there is a paper to sign and you only sign it when you are happy with what is in the paper so let’s see what happens.”
