While United hoped Fellaini would sign a new one-year deal, the 30-year-old wants a longer contract and a pay rise, according to The Times.
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho was a anxious man despite his side sealing their place in next season’s Champions League on Sunday.
“We are really motivated – especially by what he has done for the club”, Iwobi told Sky Sports News . I sent him a text on the day it was announced he was leaving, he sent me a text back. “Sometimes it gets better”.
NAIJ.com previously reported that Marouane Fellaini’s late minute goal was all Manchester United needed to beat stubborn Arsenal 2-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday, April 29.
But the Gunners’ Henrikh Mkhitaryan arrowed a powerful shot past David de Gea before Marouane Fellaini scored a victor for United in Fergie time (fan’s name for an extra helping of added time when Sir Alex’s former team is losing). Now, Arsene Wenger has given his thoughts on the youngster’s match.
Let’s pray none of these injuries are anything serious as we need a strong squad to be available if we’re to stand a chance of beating Madrid.
“In the end, we got the goal I think we deserved”.
“It was very positive but of course they are very disappointed in the dressing room because they gave everything”.
“For 70 minutes, we were not bad, but we were a bit slow, not really intense”, bemoaned the manager.
He had joined United under Jose Mourinho in 2016-17, and played a crucial role in helping the side lift the Europa League and the League Cup. “We’ll have to monitor them [the Arsenal players who were injured in the match against Man United] over the next 48 hours”.
“You know, you are against Matic and Pogba today and you didn’t shy away from any challenge, wanting the ball, covering, putting your body in, and it’s very good”.
