Liverpool are keen to sign Marouane Fellaini and have offered the Manchester United midfielder a three-year deal, according to a stunning report from L’Equipe.
Belgium star Fellaini has endured a mixed spell at Old Trafford since signing from Everton in 2013, winning the FA Cup and Europa League but failing to win over a large number of United fans.
His spell at the Theatre of Dreams appears to be drawing to a close, however, and he is expected to leave the club in the summer after rejecting multiple offers to extend his contract.
A number of European and Chinese clubs are said to be interested in securing his services, but L’Equipe claim Liverpool have moved for the 30-year-old and offered him a deal.
Fellaini did not play a single game for United in February due to injury and has missed the last two games because of what is believed to be a knee problem.
Reports in France say French giants Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco are keen to sign Fellaini but will face major competition from Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
Speaking earlier in the year, Mourinho said he ‘wanted’ Fellaini to stay at Manchester United but conceded he could leave.
‘Is he going to stay or leave? I don’t know,’ Mourinho said. ‘I want him to stay, the club want him to stay.
‘The process, the negotiations, the numbers, the distances between the offer and what he wants, I really don’t know.’
