Manchester United are not planning to hand midfielder Marouane Fellaini a new contract at Old Trafford. claim that the club are in no rush to enter negotiations with the towering Belgium international, who still has 30 months remaining on his current deal. 

In fact, according to the same report, sources close to Old Trafford suggest the United hierarchy will look to offload the former Everton man should he enjoy a successful European Championships in France this summer. 

Fellaini, who was brought to Manchester under the David Moyes regime, has had his ups and downs at the club over the last couple of years. 

After a tricky debut season, Fellaini came to prominence last term, playing a key role as Louis van Gaal's side secured a place in the top four. However, he's struggled for game time recently, so it appears that his long-term future at the club is in doubt. 

Fellaini must prove himself

In truth, Fellaini deserves a great deal of credit for turning his Old Trafford career around, but he must continue to prove himself as and when he's handed the opportunity to shine. 

Let's be honest, though, with 30 months remaining on his current deal with the club, it's not entirely surprising that United officials are in no rush to enter negotiations. They should bide their time to see how the versatile ace progresses over the coming months.
