Fellaini to reveal next move after impasse over new deal at United

By Alex Williams

Marouane Fellaini has confirmed that he will announce his future on Sunday after failing to agree a contract extension at Manchester United.

United have not met Fellaini's £120,000-a-week wage demands but AC Milan could be willing to offer him a three-year deal. Arsenal, a host of mid-table Premier League sides and leading Turkish teams have also shown strong interest.

The midfielder's contract at Old Trafford expires at midnight on Saturday and the Belgian will confirm his next move after five years in Manchester.

Speaking ahead of Belgium's match with England, Fellaini discussed whether the uncertainty had mentally affected him.

"No, I am used to it," said the 30-year-old. "I am strong mentally to deal with it and soon I will say where I'll play next season."

With Michael Carrick retiring and Fellaini leaving, United will dip back into the transfer market. They recently signed Fred, but Serbian international and Lazio ace Sergej Milinkovic-Savic remains their top target.
