Marouane Fellaini might be come Chelsea’s latest addition into their ever-growing Belgium contingent. The Belgian looks set to leave the blue side of Merseyside at end of the season. According to the Daily Mail it’s the blues who are leading the chase to sign the 25 year-old.
Despite putting pen to paper on a long-term deal at Everton he has a £23,000,000 clause in his contract. Everton will have no option but to let him go if the valuation is met by a club that has qualified for Europe’s élite club competition.
Apparently our Russian owner has held a high interest in him for a while now. This would enable him to join international team-mate and PFA player if the year nominee Eden Hazard.
Alternatively it doesn’t look like Chelsea will have it all their own way. Fellaini has attracted attention all over the globe with the likes of Anzhi Makhachkala and Zenit St Petersburg battling for his signature.
So if Everton fail to finish fourth ( which looks extremely likely after losing to Sunderland) they will be powerless to resist Fellaini’s departure. I’m sure every Everton fan would be saddened to see the man who has represented their club 125 times leave the club.
Would you be happy to see Fellaini wear a Chelsea shirt? Let me know what you think. KTBFFH!
