Former Manchester United defender Henning Berg believes Marouane Fellaini should play just behind Robin van Persie.
United's new £27.5million signing is expected to be deployed alongside Michael Carrick in the Premier League champions' engine room, however Berg has called on David Moyes to play the Belgium midfielder in an attacking role just behind the main striker.
Berg, speaking to MUTV, said of Moyes' first major signing since his arrival at Old Trafford: "He's got great potential, and if he's consistent with his best level, he will be a fantastic signing.
"He can play so many different positions, he's a good footballer but there's something about him.
"He can get players around him, he can control and dominate games, and I think United have too few players who can do that. That's why I think he will be a great signing."
Fellaini has been particularly impressive against Manchester United in recent years, with his imperious performance at the start of last season earning the Toffees a slender 1-0 win over his new employers.
The former Everton star was playing just behind Nikica Jelavić for the season opener and Berg believes the midfield powerhouse should be played in a similar position.
Berg added: "He's very difficult to handle in the box, but he's got that presence and that mentality that makes sure he stands out and does that little bit extra.
"It's not so much about technique and technical things, but he can score and set up goals.
"He's more like an English-type, not like a foreign player who can dominate with skills and tricks, but I think playing with better players will suit him."
Fellaini is expected to feature in Manchester United's Premier League match against Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on Saturday.
