Having been linked with a move for Marouane Fellaini previously, Manchester United will definitely fancy their chances at landing him over the summer transfer window.
Given that his former manager, David Moyes, will be coaching the Red Devils next season, United will feel that they have a huge advantage over other clubs in convincing the Belgian international star to switch clubs next season and move to Old Trafford. With a buyout clause in his contract, Everton would have no choice but to sell Fellaini if an offer came in this summer. And given the way that the midfielder spoke about his future and the desire to work under a manager that knows him well, you could see United do just that at some point this offseason.

Arsenal, according to the Daily Star, which says the sulky striker, left out of the side that beat Swansea yesterday in Alex Ferguson's last home game in charge of the Reds, is being pursued by the Gunners.
