Manchester United forward Fellaini whose contract expires in the summer is set to be offered a year contract extension. The extension will involve an increase in weekly pay which is expected to rise to £120,000, this is according to report.

Confirming this while speaking to reporters, United coach José Mourinho said he hopes to continue working with the 29 year old striker.

José Mourinho is also pleased with the player’s attitude on and off the pitch and sees him as an asset to his team.

“I have to say Fellaini was fantastic, for me, for the fellow players, for the fans, for the team, for the club,” he said.

It was reported earlier that Fellaini rejected a contract extension in September due to his current situation at the club, he is not seeing much game time as he would have loved to witness.

Mourinho is eagerly waiting for a positive reply from the Belgian forward. The versatile midfielder has been linked with a move to Arsenal but Mourinho wants him to stay put at Old Trafford.

Luke Shaw is another player whose contract is set to expire at the end of the season but United have triggered an extension clause in his deal.

Manchester United are feeling reluctant to extend his contract due to the fact that they’re keeping tabs on Real Madrid youngster Marco Asensio who might be on his way out of Madrid during January transfer window.

Luke Shaw, who joined Manchester United from Southampton is on Real Madrid’s and Everton’s radar.

Marouane Fellaini who just returned from injury will be hoping to stay fit for the upcoming match against Newcastle United on Saturday.

“He was injured for weeks, he trained yesterday for the first time with the team and he put himself on the line ready to come into help in case of the team needed against Newcastle United,” Mourinho said.

Fellaini is valued at 28,00 Mill. € according to transfermarkt.
