Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini's agent Luciano D'Onofrio has hinted that the midfielder is looking for a move away after admitting that a transfer to Serie A outfit AS Roma could be a possibility in the summer. The Belgium international has struggled for regular game time under Louis van Gaal and has been constantly used in multiple positions which do not allow him to nail down a regular place in the starting XI.
The 28-year-old midfielder joined the Red Devils from Everton in a £27.5m ($40m) deal during David Moyes' reign and has failed to meet expectations. He has been used in midfield and as a centre-forward while United are chasing games, much to the ire of the supporters, who have made him a constant target for their failures.
Fellaini is contracted to United until the summer of 2018, which could help them recoup some of the fee they paid Everton for the midfielder. The 20-time English champions could be set for yet another overhaul after a poor campaign in the Premier League and the former Toffees star could be part of a group of players, who could be shown the door at Old Trafford.
"He was probably there on holiday [on Fellaini's rumoured trip to Italy]. For the moment I have no other news. So far I've had no contact with Roma for him. Would that move be acceptable? Yes, Roma is a possibility to consider," the Red Devils midfielder's agent said, as quoted by the Manchester Evening News.
According to the paper, Phil Jones could also be on the list of potential departures after the midfielder's struggles to break into the first-team following his return from injury. The England international has had an injury blighted campaign, which has restricted him to just seven starts all season and that looks unlikely to change owing to the strong partnership between Daley Blind and Chris Smalling.
The 24-year-old has been relegated to playing for the U21's since his return to fitness, and the emergence of Timothy Fosu-Mensah has seen him fall further down the pecking order in the race for a place at the heart of the defence. Jones is contracted to United until 2019, but faces a major decision in the summer with regards to his future.
