So it looks a lot like Manchester United are going to offer Fellaini a new contract. The question United fans really need to ask themselves in my opinion is if any of the major clubs in Europe would award a contract rewnewal to a player of this level?
Would Fellaini get on for Bayern Munich? Would you imagine him playing for Real Madrid or Barca?
United really need to raise the bar throughout the team on a technical level. Too much leeway is being given to players who show up for maybe 50% of matches. I include players like Martial, Rashford and Mata here even though I have a great fondness for them as a fan.
Players like Fellaini offer nothing. The man is technically redundant, can’t pass or tackle without endangering himself with a red card and seems to be forgiven everything because he occasionally hurls himself into the box at the death and grabs a goal thanks only to sheer height.
What top team would buy this player. I always judge a player by where I think he’d end up if we sold him. In Fellaini‘s case it’s west ham. Maybe Leeds.
Are we supposed to challenge for the Champions League next year with West Ham quality players? Or the league?
Would you see him playing for City?? Then why us?
I think it’s madness to offer him a new contract. He’s a joker and a journey man and he drags down the general standard of the team.
