Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has told Marouane Fellaini he wants him to stay at the club over holding a meeting with the midfielder over his future.
The Belgian is out of contract at the end of the season and is attracting interest from China and Turkey.
The 29-year-old is now a senior member of United’s squad but is one of the lower paid members of that group on £80,000-a-week.
Fellaini is aware that his next contract is likely to be his last big one in football and is negotiations have been tough with the Red Devils.
Mourinho dismissed interest from Galatasaray in the summer, suggesting it would be easier for them to hire him as manager than to buy Fellaini.
However, there’s been very little progress since on a new deal and Mourinho has held a meeting with Fellaini to tell him how much he’s valued at Old Trafford.
