Manchester United have launched a bid for Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini, according to the Mirror.
The Red Devils appear to have ended their interest in Barcelona star Cesc Fabregas, who is keen to stay at the Nou Camp, and are now expected to active Fellaini's £23.5m buy-out clause.
The 25-year-old is free to move to a Champions League club this summer if his release clause is triggered, and with United boss David Moyes failing to secure the signatures of his first-choice midfield targets, the ex-Toffees boss will now attempt to sign his former player.
Fellaini - who enjoyed his most impressive season of his career last term, scoring 12 goals in 36 matches - is expected to become the first major signing of Moyes' Manchester United tenure.
After missing out on Fabregas and Thiago Alcantara, who left Barcelona for Bayern Munich this summer, Fellaini's signing would go some way to appeasing the United faithful, who have watched Manchester City and Chelsea both strengthen with high-quality additions in recent months.
Will Fellaini help Manchester United retain the Premier League title this season? Is he good enough to play for the English champions? Have your say in the comments box below.
