Mourinho Rules Out Fellaini Exit, Confirms Matic Deal

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.
