United have been linked with a £50m move for Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic this summer.

But it has been suggested Old Trafford boss Jose Mourinho was keen to offload Fellaini before sealing a reunion with the Serbian.

And Galatasaray’s sporting director Cenk Ergun has revealed that they want Fellaini.

Speaking to Ajansspor, he said: “We have a surprise name for a position. We have had talks with Marouane Fellaini.

“We need a player like Fellaini who can shuttle around in midfield.

“We have made an approach, we are close.”
