David Moyes to bid £18m for Fellaini to beat Arsenal and Anzhi

    Manchester United manager David Moyes is determined to complete a double deal for Cesc Fabregas and Marouane Fellaini as he plots an overhaul of his midfield options according to the Metro

    Moyes has already failed to land top targets in the form of Thiago Alcantara and Leighton Baines, but he desperate to kick-start his reign at Old Trafford by landing both Fabregas and Fellaini in time for the new season.

    United began the process of recruiting the duo by lodging a £26million bid with Barcelona for Fabregas on Monday, although it was later turned down.

    It’s thought that United are ready to return with an improved offer, but Barca insist the player is ‘not transferable’.

    Fabregas is expected to speak with Barca manager Tito Vilanova before the weekend to discuss his future, and United are expected to turn to Everton star Fellaini in the meantime.

    According to reports, Moyes believes he can land the Belgian for £18million, despite significant interest from Arsenal and Russian side Anzhi.

    If Moyes can lure both Fellaini and Fabregas, the expectation is that they would form part of of a new look-midfield, aimed at getting goals.

    Moyes has so far only managed to sign one player – Uruguay Under-20 defender Guillermo Varela

    Everton meanwhile will hold out for the £24m which is the Belgians release clause which lasts until August 15th.

    1. What a shat article! 24m release clause. Going nowhere without it. Absolutley stupid article that can be thrown in the bin with the rest of poor journalism regarding the Fellaini situation. Getting bored of it now.

    2. Deary me, its getting boring now really isnt it? So Fellaini has a 22,23,24 million pound(whatever sum the papers come up with,seems to change daily) activation clause so now they get bored again and gues what? Hey David Moyes can try and sign him for 18 million..Get real, I wouldnt sell United the club cat for their derisory bids for our players, yet we are being told by the media to pay 20 million for James McCarthy. The only way Fellaini goes is if somebody comes in with the activation clause fee and thats at least 4 million more than the 18 being quoted today.

    3. This is poor journalism why would Moyes offer 18 million when he knows the buy out clause is 24 million? If he tries after the cut off date Fellaini is going to cost more not less than his buy out clause.
