Marouane Fellaini has hinted he would like to follow David Moyes from Everton to Manchester United in the summer.

The Belgium international’s future at Goodison Park has been in doubt for much of the season amid talk of a potential move to Chelsea.

Fellaini has scored 12 goals in 35 appearances in this season, blossoming into one of the league’s most-feared midfielders under Moyes’ tutelage.

The Toffees boss has already been confirmed as Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor at Old Trafford, with the Scot set to pen a six-year deal on 1 July.

And the 25-year-old insisted he would only leave the Toffees for a club where the manager really wanted him, likes Moyes did in 2008.

“If I’m leaving Everton, I say if, it will depend on lots of factors,” Fellaini told the Sunday Mirror.

“I only want to go to a club where the manager really wants me.

“In 2008, Everton did everything to convince me, especially David Moyes. He made me the player I am now.”

Fellaini revealed Moyes believes the Belgian is best suited to a holding-midfield role as opposed to slotting in behind the striker.

“I’m happy with my season, although I didn’t play in my best position,” added Fellaini.

“I’m not a number 10. David Moyes predicts my future as a defensive midfielder, but due to a lack of offensive power, he plays me up front.

“In the future I want to play as a six or an eight. From there, I can create danger and score goals.”

Fellaini has scored 32 goals in 172 appearances for the Toffees after completing a £15m move from Standard Liege in 2008.
