Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini reportedly sign deal with Besiktas

- Manchester United may lose Marounane Fellani this summer

- The Belgian has reportedly agreed a pre-summer deal with Besiktas

- Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is a fan of Fellani and is keen on keeping the Belgian

Premier League giants Manchester United may lose Marounane Fellani as the big Belgian has reportedly agreed deal with Turkish side Besiktas ahead of the summer.

The Belgian international is currently undergoing a rough spell under at Old Traford which has seen him have very limited game time under Jose Mourinho.

Though the Portuguese gaffer revealed that he still values Fellaini's input and would love to keep him beyond the summer at United.

Turkish media, Foto Mac believes that Fellaini has already decided to seek a more prominent role elsewhere and has signed a pre-contract agreement with Besiktas to move once his contract expires on June 30.

The 30-year-old rejected United's last offer in September 2017 and talks with his agent have moved at a snail's pace since then. While it was agreed by Old Trafford officials that they would not sell up in January, they appear to have failed in their attempts to keep him.

News of his reported departure is likely to infuriate Mourinho, who put Manchester United officials under pressure to retain the Belgian powerhouse to stay after making it clear how much he values his services.

Indeed, Fellaini's prominence has grown after an initial patchy start under Mourinho and is now considered a key figure in the squad.

The midfielder has started just three Premier League games this season and appeared off the bench a further nine times. While his lack of action is partly down to fitness issues, Mourinho has also used him as an effective option late on in games.

Fellaini has gotten 149 appearances for Manchester United since joining from Everton in 2013 for £27.5m and has dealt with plenty of stigma from fans for being the only major signing to arrive in David Moyes' one and only summer in charge.
