Reports emerged from Turkey this morning claiming that Marouane Fellaini was set to move to Galatasaray. 

Cenk Ergun, Galatasaray director, has confirmed the reports. 

There will be surprises, we are in talks with Fellaini. We have made an approach, we are close. We need a player like Fellaini who can shuttle around in midfield.

With United yet to secure deals for Nemanja Matic or Eric Dier, it’s strange that the club are prepared to let Fellaini leave without confirmation of cover.
