Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini claims that he is being unfairly treated in English football due to his reputation for being a physical player. The Belgian has already received three sending-off in his time in English football. He was also found guilty of elbowing Robert Huth back in 2016. This forced him to spend three matches on the sidelines. Fellaini last received a red card when he played in the Manchester derby back in April. This is one of the several incidents involving the Belgian, who is coming to the final few months of his Manchester United career.
Fellaini was expected to leave Old Trafford back in the summer, but Jose Mourinho chose to offer him a one-year contract extension against the wishes of most fans. However, it looks highly unlikely that Fellaini will receive another contract in the next few months. The midfielder came in from Everton for around £ 27 million under the regime of David Moyes. He has started only three Premier League matches this season and has appeared in a further six as a substitute. In comparison, he featured in 18 games from the start last season and made further 10 substitute appearances in the Premier league.
French forward Anthony Martial is looking to add more goals to his tally for Manchester United between now and the end of the season. The 21-year-old has been in tremendous form for the Red Devils in the early part of the campaign, producing key goals including the winner against Tottenham Hotspur last weekend.
Martial has already racked seven goals in the United shirt across all competitions, and he is just one short of achieving last season’s tally under Jose Mourinho. Despite this, the Frenchman wants to take his game to another level as he aims to make a greater impact with the Europa League holders.
Patrice Evra may end up getting the wrath of many Premier League clubs after claiming that he had advised midfielder Paul Pogba to turn down a potential move to Manchester United. The Frenchman, who had been a bookmakers‘ favourite to return to OT, left United when he was still a teenager and joined Juventus on a free transfer.
Now 22, Pogba is regarded as one of the finest midfielders in world football. Juventus have reportedly placed a price of £ 70 million for his signature. Hence, a potential transfer could will exceed the figure of £100 million if the wages and bonuses are taken into account over a period of five years.
Captain Nemanja Vidic has told the clubs website that there is still a long way to go in the title race, despite helping his side regain a seven point advantage over second place Manchester City in the Premier League.

Speaking after the club’s final fixture of their pre-season programme, Rooney claims that the squad are now fit and fresh enough to try and win their title back from rivals City. Continue reading
Sir Alex Ferguson has made no secret of the fact that he is not going to pay over the odds for players this summer, with the failed attempts to sign Eden Hazard and Lucas Moura being prime examples of the club’s stringent approach.
