Manchester United could miss out on snapping up Marouane Fellaini for a cut price, as the clause in his contract that allows him to leave for £22m expires on July 31st.

United have been heavily linked with the Belgian since David Moyes assumed his role as manager at Old Trafford, but it is thought that he would come as a last resort if United miss out on a number of other targets.

David Moyes said attempts to sign Cesc Fabregas are on going but if they fall through, Moyes may be forced to turn to his former player.

If that is the case, he will need an answer from Barcelona quickly because Fellaini’s price could sky rocket after next Wednesday.

Whilst United fans crave a central midfielder I don’t think many are keen on bringing in Fellaini unless he is last resort. Having been linked with the likes of Fabregas, Thiago (?) and more recently Gundogan, signing the Everton bruiser would be somewhat of a let down.
