It's a good day to be a Manchester United fan.

Not only are the Red Devils on the brink of completing a record-breaking £112 million deal to re-sign Paul Pogba from Juventus, but it would seem an expensive flop could soon be heading for the exit door.

Wholesale changes were expected upon Jose Mourinho's arrival at Old Trafford and whilst he has completed three signings, with a fourth imminent, the Portuguese has done little in the way of cropping his squad.

Victor Valdes and Nick Powell have both left on free transfers but reports in June suggested as many as 13 players were due to be transfer listed by Mourinho.

Further departures are inevitable, of course, and it would seem one player who could be on his way out of Old Trafford is Marouane Fellaini.

According to The Sun, recently-appointed Sunderland manager David Moyes is keen to reunite with the Belgian for a third time at the Stadium of Light.

A £13 million bid is reportedly in the offing which, if accepted, would see United receive £14.5 million less than they paid for him in 2013.

Fans will care little about the transfer fee, though, amidst their desperation for Mourinho to dispose of the much-maligned midfielder.

With news of Fellaini's potential departure spreading like wildfire, Twitter has reacted in typically brutal style.

"I'LL PACK HIS BAGS"

It's unanimous: United fans want him gone.

When Moyes splashed out to sign Fellaini at Old Trafford three years ago, the Scotsman discussed all the attributes he felt the Belgian possessed that would see him succeed.

He told United's official website: "He's well known in the Premier League, experienced in the Premier League and he can do several different jobs.

"He can play different positions, score goals and is effective in different areas of the field. So I'm hoping that if he can continue to improve and does the same at Manchester United, we could have a really top player on our hands."

Safe to say Moyes' prediction was far wide of the mark, but at a club like Sunderland, Fellaini would be a perfect fit and could yet rediscover the form that saw him earn a move to United in the first place.
