  • Man Utd Team News Injuries suspensions and line-up vs Newcastle United

The Portuguese led United to Europa League success a year ago and is now aiming to bring the Premier League title to Old Trafford for the first time since 2013.

Despite his increasing importance to the side, the club have yet to make him an acceptable contract offer, meaning that he can leave on a pre-contract deal for nothing this summer if an agreement isn't reached.

Put simply, Fellaini is Man United's plan B when they are struggling to find the back of the net.

Jose Mourinho now sees Valencia's Carlos Soler as his main January transfer target, in what is likely to be a limited window for Manchester United.

However, Stone also cites the close relationship between the player and manager Jose Mourinho as a possibly deciding factor in whether Fellaini opts to sign a new deal.

It is understood Manchester United will not look to sell Fellaini in the next transfer window, regardless of his contract situation, and are willing to risk him leaving in the summer for nothing.

Father: 'Jose Mourinho held Ruben Loftus-Cheek back'
When I had a chance, and when you don't play, you really feel the difference of what matches give you; the match sharpness, the fitness, the strength.


Gooners, would Fellaini fit in well at Arsenal?

Pogba is now closing in on a return and could feature against Newcastle on Saturday, which will limit Fellaini's chances still more.

In today's market the youngster would certainly fetch the £40m required as other clubs, and not just Manchester United, are chasing him.

He started in both the 2016 FA Cup final and last season's Europa League final and played a key role in both triumphs.

Martial, 21, has only started three Premier League games for United this season but has been used as a substitute to great effect by Mourinho, with the Frenchman having scored four times after being introduced off the bench.
