Arsenal could seal shock transfer of 31-year-old Man United star

December 6, 2017

Arsenal would be delighted to lure Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini at Emirates Stadium, according to pundit Danny Mills.

The 30-year-old Belgian powerhouse has been strongly linked with a switch away from Old Trafford.

Fellaini’s contract runs out at the end of the current campaign and he is yet to negotiate with the club over a contract extension.

Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain were the latest team to be strongly linked with a move for Fellaini, with reports claiming that French club have offered him a four-year deal.

However, Mills claims that Arsenal would be his perfect destination.

“Why would you get rid of him? If you could keep him, why would you allow one of your rivals to take him and make them stronger?” Mills told BBC Radio Five Live.

“He does a job. He does what John Obi Mikel did for many years at Chelsea.

“Keep him and bring somebody else in as well. That would be the ideal scenario.

“It is not like ‘if we keep him, we haven’t got any money left because we’ve got to pay him some wages’.

“You keep him, allow him to do his job. Fill in when necessary, be a squad player, do all those things.

“He’s scored some important goals because he is a threat. Arsenal would love him, without a shadow of a doubt. Just to sit in front of the back four, win a few headers.”
