Mixed messages from Everton's Fellaini over Chelsea move
Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has refused to rule out a move to Chelsea this summer, stressing that while he is happy with life at Goodison Park, if the club decided to sell him he would relish the chance to play in the Champions League, the Daily Mail has reported.
Fellaini said: “If I have got to go I will go, if not I am at Everton. I want to play in the Champions League or the Europa League. If it comes, I take, if it does not come I stay at Everton, where I am happy and where I still have a four-year contract.” The newspaper adds that Chelsea have been joined in their pursuit of Fellaini by Real Madrid, with both sides keen to sign a defensive midfielder this summer.
The Belgium international moved to Everton in August 2008, with David Moyes breaking the club’s transfer record to sign the former Standard Liege player - it previously stood at £11.25m, the sum paid to Middlesbrough for Yakubu in 2007, but Fellaini’s switch raised the bar to around £15m.
In his four years on the blue half of Merseyside Fellaini has made 137 appearances, scoring 20 goals in the process. Last season the 24-year-old appeared in 43 games for Everton and was on target five times.
