“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.
