Marouane Fellaini offered exciting deal away from Man Utd after FA Cup final omission

Manchester United have certainly enjoyed better days this season.

It hasn't exactly been a campaign full of joy, but their FA Cup final loss to Chelsea on Saturday was one of the lowest points of 2017/18.

Eden Hazard's first-half penalty handed Jose Mourinho his first ever loss in an English cup final, with the Special One clearly distraught with the result after.

Criticism has come his way from everywhere, with United's second-place finish in the Premier League the only thing giving him some respite,

It was Mourinho's team and squad selection for the final that set alarm bells ringing.

Marcus Rashford as a striker backfired, with Red Devils fans simply not understanding why Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly and Romelu Lukaku did not have more involved roles.

And his omission of Marouane Fellaini from the squad altogether was pretty puzzling.

While the giant Belgian is not the most popular of players, United fans certainly wouldn't have minded seeing him come on late in the game to trouble the Chelsea defence.


Mourinho has been adamant of late that he wants to keep the Belgian, but the former Everton man has now been handed a very exciting offer in the wake of his FA Cup omission.

The Times report that Serie A giants AC Milan have prepared a three-year contract for the Belgian midfielder and it's more in line with Fellaini's demands than United's extension offer - the Red Devils have only offered him a one-year deal.

Given the criticism he has received time and time again during his stint at Old Trafford, the San Siro must surely be a more attractive destination at this moment in time.

The Rossoneri are slowly rebuilding their past reputation under the leadership of Gennaro Gattuso, securing qualification for next season's Europa League.

Gattuso loves a physical presence and Fellaini could be the ideal man for Milan.
