Fellaini future to be decided by van Gaal.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is not using the World Cup as an opportunity to impress prospective new clubs, but insists his future at Old Trafford is entirely in the hands of Louis van Gaal.

The 26-year-old came off the bench to score an excellent equaliser in Belgium's World Cup opener against Algeria before his side sealed a valuable 2-1 win.

Fellaini won praise for his influential role in his side's victory, something which has become a rarity for the midfielder after a disastrous first season at Old Trafford following his £27.5m arrival from Everton last summer.

With new manager van Gaal expected to make sweeping changes to the side that recorded their worst ever Premier League finish last season, questions have been asked over Fellaini's future amid suggestions his direct style will immediately be at odds with the Dutchman's approach to the game.

But when asked by Belgian outlet Sporza if his second half goal was a message to United, he replied: "No, not at all. Nor do I play here for a transfer.

"We will see what the new coach (says). But I still feel well at United."

Fellaini's performances under David Moyes last season were one of the most derided sub-plots to the Scot's dismal reign in charge at Old Trafford. Having previously proved himself to be a reliable goal threat at Everton, the Belgian failed to register a single goal during the 2013/14 season and consistently underperformed in games against United's immediate rivals.

Van Gaal is expected to make at least one addition to United's midfield with the currently injured Kevin Strootman, Bayern Munich's Bastian Schweinsteiger and Athletic Bilbao schemer Ander Herrera linked with filling the void in the middle of United's team.

Although his club future remains uncertain, Fellaini remains fully focused on his country's World Cup campaign which could culminate in him parting ways with his infamous afro hairstyle, should Marc Wilmots' side go on to lift the trophy.

Having previously promised to cut his hair off if he ever won the Champions League, Sporza asked the United midfielder whether he would make a similar bet this summer. "If we win the World Cup, I cut my hair off," Fellaini said. "Absolutely. We have a deal."
