Turkish giants interested in signing Manchester United star

Marouane Fellaini

Besiktas are now first in their Champions League Group and have lifted the Turkish Super League title for the past two seasons.

Fellaini had been heavily linked with a move to Galatasaray last summer, but the Belgian bounced back and scored four goals already this season.

Manchester United could be set to lose star player, Marouane Fellaini as the stalemate concerning his contract continues to rumble on.

But Naibi, speaking to Calico Mercato, made it clear that no such interest in Fellaini existed.

"He is not the only player we scouted, our scouting team watched 20 games live this week".

Despite reports of Besiktas' interest turning out to be false, Fellaini's precarious situation hasn't changed. The fact that his contract expires following the 2017/18 campaign, along with his sudden importance to United's midfield set-up, makes his negotiating position strong.

Following the dismissal of the Scot, Fellaini remained in Manchester under new boss Louis van Gaal and now Jose Mourinho but is still the focus of transfer rumours at the club.

In other news, Fellaini intends to sue his boot manufacturers New Balance for £2.1m as he claims that the footwear injured him.

Belgium manager Roberto Martinez says that Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini "needs a proper 10 days work with no game" before he can be considered fully fit.

Fellaini signed an endorsement with New Balance during his time with Everton, but the Sun reported that the boots that the 29-year-old was forced to wear as part of this agreement caused 'loss of enjoyment, inconvenience and impact on performance'.
