There were multiple reports last night that Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be on his way to Turkish club Galatasaray. 

Supporters rejoiced when the news broke considering how poor the Belgian has been for much of his stay at Old Trafford. However, they have obviously spoken too soon with United boss Jose Mourinho emphatically denying the rumours following his side’s win over Valerenga.

When asked about Fellaini’s future, he remarked:

“It’s easier for Galatasaray to get me than Marouane. He is too important to me. No chance.”

So, despite Gala’s serious interest, the 29-year-old is unquestionably staying put.

Stories in Turkey on Saturday had even gone as far as to claim the player had agreed personal terms and signed a five-year contract with Igor Tudor’s side.

Fellaini bagged his second goal of United’s pre-season tour as the Europa League champs cruised past Norweigan side Valerenga in Oslo. He also found the net against LA Galaxy in the first game of the trip.

While he is unlikely to start many games this season should Nemanja Matic complete his mooted move, he’s sure to see plenty of action considering United’s hectic fixture schedule.

Next up for Mourinho’s men is a friendly against Sampdoria in Dublin on Wednesday.
