Marouane Fellaini is no doubt a fantastic Premier League player.

He has made his qualities clear since arriving to Goodison Park from Standard Liege some five years ago, but I think his time is up at Everton.

Since arriving for a club-record fee of £15million, it has taken him a while to adjust, but he is one of the finest midfielders in the league. He can go forward and defend, can control a game with his sheer power and presence and is a valuable asset to any of the top teams. 

Fellaini is no doubt Champions League quality. At the start of the season, the Belgian gave a warning to Everton fans in an interviewing, saying: "I am just starting my fifth season at Everton, this will be one of my last. I have seen everything. In January or at the end of the season I will turn to another club or championship."

He has his sights set and with Manchester United determined to get a strong, powerful midfielder he looks like he could be off.

Having already had a bid rejected for Fellaini, United are determined to go in with another offer and try to prize away one of Everton's finest players.

The only thing that could potentially let Fellaini down at the highest level is his temper.

He was one of the highest offenders for fouls last season, with yellow cards stacking up as a result. He also infamously head-butted Ryan Shawcross, and discipline is certainly an area of his game he needs to improve.

But all in all he would be a midfield enforcer for Manchester United, and would be an astute and smart piece of business by David Moyes.

As for Everton, if Fellaini does leave, there is a question, who will replace him? Personally I think James McCarthy and Gareth Barry will certainly fill the gap for Fellaini and won't break the bank, but new boss Roberto Martinez may have other ideas.
