Jose Mourinho has revealed he is still in the dark about the future of Marouane Fellaini.
The United boss is still hopeful the midfielder can still be persuaded to extend his stay at the club beyond this season.
The 30-year-old contract rebel has rejected fresh terms at Old Trafford as he heads for the exit as a free agent this summer.
Fellaini in his fifth season at United has been linked with moves to Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Roma.
But he has not played since January due to a niggling knee injury with Mourinho uncertain the midfielder will be at the club next term.
Mourinho said ahead Monday’s trip to Crystal Palace: “Is he going to stay or leave? I don’t know.
“I want him to stay, the club want him to stay.
“The process – negotiations, numbers, distances between the offer and what he wants – I really don’t know.
“He’s still a young player.
“His injury, he had a little surgery but minor surgery, and he will be back to play again in a couple of weeks.
“So if we proceed in the Champions League after Sevilla, I think he will be ready for a hypothetical quarter-final, a hypothetical FA Cup semi-final, for the last couple of months of our Premier League fight.”
Fellaini followed former United boss David Moyes from Everton to Old Trafford in 2013 for £27million.
The big Belgian has scored 19 goals in 149 appearances, with his last game lasting just seven minutes as a second half sub in the defeat to Spurs at Wembley.
