Good old Louis van Gaal. You can always rely on him for a good laugh and this time he has managed to keep his trousers on.

Having scoured the world for what seems like an eternity, in an attempt to find a striker who will understand Wayne Rooney's shouts, Manchester United have finally found one.

Harry Kane, Thomas Muller and Neymar have been touted as possible additions at Old Trafford this summer, but the penny has finally dropped.

Cue Marouane Fellaini, he of the big hair, big frame and recently, pretty big performances. He was even introduced at the pre-Bruges press conference as a new player (almost). 

King Louis has decided that Marouane is the answer to the club's paucity in front of goal. Not a bad shout when you consider that only he, Januzaj and Memphis had scored for United before Brugge and Fellaini did it from the substitute's bench. 

Now, cynical folk may think that Louis has given up all hope of signing a world class goal getter before the curtains are drawn on the transfer window, but that is not the case. He has decided he doesn't need one. Manchester United are going to save some money by using one they prepared earlier.

Not only are they going to save on a striker but also on a number six, a number eight and a number ten as Marouane is not too fussy about which of those digits adorns his broad shoulders. He will play anywhere the manager asks him to and he will play better than anyone else in that position or die trying.

So look out Premier League and European clubs, you have been warned. Marouane is out to get you.

Manchester United fans, can Fellaini succeed as a forward at Old Trafford? Have your say below!
