Manchester United and Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini has insisted that he has nothing to prove amid rumours that he could be allowed to leave Old Trafford this summer, reports the Daily Mail.
The former Everton star endured a difficult first season at Man Utd after being signed for £27m towards the end of the summer transfer window. He failed to score and was often criticised as the team struggled collectively and finished in 7th place, failing to qualify for Europe.
Rumours have surfaced over recent days that new Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal has instructed the club to sell Fellaini, who he reportedly believes is not of sufficient calibre to play for the Red Devils. Some suggestions state that United are now willing to listen to offers as low as £15m for Fellaini.
When quizzed on his future with his club side, Fellaini was coy, saying: ‘I don’t have to prove (anything) – I’ve been a professional footballer for eight years. We will see after the World Cup.’
Fellaini is expected to be part of the Belgium team which takes on Argentina in the first of Saturday’s World Cup quarter-finals, having scored once during their campaign so far.
