Transfer report: Fenerbahce plotting January raid for Manchester United duo Marouane Fellaini and Luke Shaw
Marouane Fellaini and Luke Shaw are both out of contract at Old Trafford in the summer
Wednesday, November 15, 2017
According to Turkish outlet Fotomac, the Super Lig giants believe they can convince both of them to leave Old Trafford and start a new life in Istanbul.
Reports in England have suggested that both players could be sold by United, who have spent nearly £300million since Jose Mourinho became manager.
Both players are out of contract in the summer meaning they are free to talk to non-English clubs regarding a pre-contract agreement from January.
Alternatively, interested clubs can make an offer to buy them in January which may appeal to United as it would prevent either player from leaving for nothing in the summer.
Left-back Shaw has suffered an injury affected spell at United since his £37.5m move from Southampton in 2014 and he has played just four times in the Premier League this season.
Fellaini, meanwhile, has become a bit-part player at United under Mourinho starting just three league games this term.
In fact, the Belgian midfielder has never started more than 19 games in a Premier League season since his move from Everton in 2013.
But Fenerbahce hope the promise of regular first-team football may be enough to convince both men to head to the Turkish capital.
