Man United transfers: ‘Marouane Fellaini would improve at Red Devils’
Man United transfers: Former Red Devils defender David May expresses his doubts over Marouane Fellaini
David May believes Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini would improve working with the Manchester United squad if the Belgian moves to Old Trafford.
The defending Premier League champions are reported to be weighing up an improved offer for the giant playmaker on deadline day after failing with a joint bid for Leighton Baines and Fellaini last month.
United manager David Moyes lured Fellaini to the Premier League from Standard Liege in 2008, and the Scot is believed to be keen to bring the 25-year-old to Old Trafford after missing out on other targets this summer.
But former Red Devils centre-half May is unsure whether the Belgium international has the quality to succeed at the 20-time English champions.
“I’m not quite sure [about Fellaini],” May told Sky Sports.
“I watched him at the weekend. He didn’t light anything up. He is a good player and always caused United problems when we’ve played against him.
“Whether paying £35m or £40m is right, well we’ll have to wait and see.
“Moyes has worked with for a number of years at Everton. He knows what strengths he’ll bring to United.
“I’m sure once he gets to United and works with the lads, it will bring him on.”
