Carrick welcomes Fellaini arrival

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has welcomed the arrival of Belgium international Marouane Fellaini, ESPN understands.

The arrival of the 25 year old ends David Moyes tireless search for a central midfielder, a position in which Carrick shone last season.

The England international started thirty-four of the clubs league games last season, and was voted a member of the PFA Team of the Year, though his place in the side is no longer guaranteed following the arrival of Fellaini.

Nevertheless, he is pleased at the arrival of the former Everton man, who became the fifth most expensive player in United’s history at the eleventh hour on transfer deadline day.

Elsewhere, Luis Nani is set to end speculation surrounding his future by signing a new contract with the club, according to the Metro.

The Portuguese winger was strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, with Arsenal, Monaco and Roma said to be interested in securing his services.

However, reports suggest that the club have offered him a new three-year deal on slightly improved terms, including lucrative bonuses.

The 26 year old has been with United since joining from Sporting Lisbon for around £20m in 2007, and has since gone on to make over two hundred appearances for the club.
