A number of Newcastle United fans have found themselves rather annoyed after their club was linked with a move for Marouane Fellaini.
With the transfer market open, all eyes are on the Magpies to see what deals they may do under their wealthy new owners. One player who would certainly cause a stir if he was to join is the former Premier League midfielder.
According to a report in Belgian media outlet Les Sports, Fellaini is wanted by Newcastle, who see him as ‘the ideal man to build their new team’.
The report also claimed that the 34-year-old, who has aged ‘like fine wine’, is being watched by Turkish teams Galatasaray and Besiktas, despite recently extending his contract with current club Shandong Taishan.
The story was shared on social media by NUFC360, but it didn’t seem to go down well with many of the club’s supporters.
Here’s what these NUFC fans said…
It’s clear to see just how unhappy these fans are at the prospect of seeing the Belgian star play for their side. Fellaini has not played in England since the 2018/19 season where he managed 14 appearances, scoring no goals for Man United.
Will Chris Wood's goals keep Newcastle up?
At his current club, however, he has shown he still has plenty to offer. Indeed, in 80 appearances he has managed 30 goals and a further six assists – an impressive record for a midfielder.
Despite that, these supporters are clearly not interested.
