Man Utd midfielder Fellaini reveals Arsenal, Chelsea offers

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini claims Arsenal and Chelsea were keen on him in the summer. Fellaini left Everton in a last minute summer transfer deadline day deal worth £27m, and has now admitted he had several other options open to him including the Gunners.

Failing to also rule out Chelsea interest, Fellaini said: "I don't want to tell you everything what happened during the transfer."

"This was done at the last minute.

"In a transfer window, there is always a list of players, you never know if it's true or not. But for me, I knew [Moyes] was interested in me.

"Chelsea? No comment. Arsenal? It's true, they were interested, but Manchester United convinced me to sign for them."
