Turkish club in talks with Man Utd over Fellaini

The president of Turkish club Trabzonspor has claimed talks have begun with Manchester United over the sale of Marouane Fellaini.

United triggered a one-year extension in the Belgian's contract in January, which extends the 29-year-old's stay at the club until 2017-18. Fellaini has 27 Premier League appearances to his name this season and has quickly become one of manager Jose Mourinho's favourites.

However, Trabzonspor president Muharrem Usta has insisted his club are in deliberations with not only Fellaini, but also CSKA Moscow midfielder Bibras Natkho and Villarreal striker Roberto Soldado.

"We are focusing our efforts on signing a midfielder and striker," Usta told Takvim, via Turkish Football. "We are looking for players who will improve the team and help fill our new stadium.

"The midfielders we are in talks with are Fellaini and Natkho. We are also in talks with the striker Soldado."
