Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, have declared that midfielder, Marouane Fellaini, is going nowhere, despite reported interest from Galatasaray.
Speaking shortly after Manchester United’s pre-season friendly victory over Valerenga, Mourinho said: “It’s easier for Galatasaray to get me than Marouane. If they need a manager, they have a chance, but Marouane? Forget it.”

Turkish news outlet, Ajansspor, reported last week that the 29-year-old midfielder is ready to leave United for Galatasaray, following the departure of Nigel de Jong from the Turkish side.
Meanwhile, Nemanja Matic’s reported £40m move from Chelsea to Manchester United seems to be almost done, following a leaked picture of Matic sporting a United training kit.
Asked about the leaked photo, Mourinho continued: “I don’t know because I was not there. Number 31 is a free number. It was Schweinsteiger. It’s a free jersey, we have a few free and 31 is one of them.”
“I’m waiting for news. I know that he wants that very, very much and when a player wants very, very much the chance is bigger, the chance is bigger, so I think we have a chance but in football until it’s official, I saw so many things happen that I refuse to say more than I am telling you now.” he concluded.
