David Moyes is set to sign Marouane Fellaini, a player he is extremely familiar with after coaching him at Everton.
Belgian media are reporting that the deal is 'almost done', reporting: "Red Devil Marouane Fellaini (25) has his dream transfer to a European club almost done: he is on his way to Manchester United."
The Belgian has a £23.5m buy-out clause in his contract, and the player is desperate for Champions League football, but United do not value him to be worth that much, so a tussle between the two clubs is expected.
The signing of Fellaini could be a sign that Moyes has given up on his number one target, Cesc Fabregas of Barcelona, after two bids were rejected by the Catalan club.
Fellaini is expected to join Manchester United in the coming days, which would make him David Moyes' first major signing as the Red Devils' manager.
