Marouane Fellaini is set to stay at Manchester United after the midfielder signed a two-year contract extension until 2020 with an option of a further year to stay.
The midfielder was set to become a free agent on July 1 and the Belgium international had stated he was going to make an announcement on his future soon. There were rumours of a move to AC Milan but United made the jump before their own player and made an announcement on Friday.
“I am pleased to be continuing my journey as a Manchester United player,” Fellaini told the club’s website.
“I made this decision because I am very happy here. Also, I feel like this team, under Jose, still has a lot we want to achieve.
“I would like to say a special thank you to Jose for the faith he has always shown in me. My focus now is on the World Cup and I am looking forward to a successful season ahead.”
Fellaini made 16 league appearances last term – with only five starts – scoring four goals as United finished a long way behind champions Manchester City.
