Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be allowed to leave the club during the ongoing January transfer window after initial suggestions pointed towards Louis van Gaal wanting to retain the services of the Belgian international. A number of clubs are interested in signing the versatile player as he is struggling for regular game time at Old Trafford.

According to the Mirror, the Red Devils are willing to listen to offers for the former Everton star with Serie A clubs Juventus and AS Roma interested in signing him. Earlier, reports suggested that AC Milan were keen on a loan move for the midfielder, but they have since distanced themselves from a move with the Rossoneri chief Adriano Galliani confirming that they will not make a move.

The report, however, claims that the 20-times English champions are looking for a more permanent solution rather than a loan spell, and believe that the club have informed interested parties regarding the same. United will listen to serious offers, but are keen to recoup at least half the amount they paid when signing him from Everton in 2013.

The Dutch manager, who used Fellaini more as a second striker rather than his primary position of a midfielder, has decided that Belgian will not be part of his plans for the foreseeable future at the club. He has hardly featured for the Red Devils this season, making just 10 appearances in the Premier League of which just four were from the start.

The 28-year-old midfielder will want to play regular football and could have a number of suitors due to his versatility to provide a different avenue of attack when chasing games apart from his usual role as a dynamic midfielder.
