Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has told the club that he wants a huge pay rise to remain at the Old Trafford.
The midfielder has been tipped to make a move away from the Red Devils due to his mixed fortunes at the club since he joined them from Everton.
The lanky Belgian has been on a brilliant form this season, which has tipped United to enter contract renewal talks with player with reports that Jose Mourinho is keen on settling the future of his players before the start of the January transfer window in bid to avoid speculations during the transfer period.
However, reports in the Sun claim that Fellaini is asking for a significant payrise to remain at United with his current deal expiring at the end of the season.
It is understood that the midfielder who is currently on £80,000 per week, is asking for a wagebill around £130,000 to pen a new deal.
However, It is also said that Manchester United will be reluctanct to offer Fellaini such amount of money due to his current age but Mourinho is a keen admirer of the midfielder’s qualities which could play an important role in the negotiations between the player and club’s representatives.
