Marouane Fellaini admits he was nervous ahead of his Manchester United move – but has now set his sights on winning silverware at the Red Devils.

The Belgium international completed a much-anticipated £27.5m move to the reigning Premier League champions minutes before the transfer deadline on Monday night.

Fellaini failed to win any silverware during five seasons at Everton after the Merseyside outfit suffered a 2-1 loss to Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley in 2009.

The 25-year-old admits moving to United is a “big step” in his blossoming career and the Beglian is desperate to win his first trophy in English football.

“It was a great week for me. It was nervous on Monday, but I have my transfer and I won with Belgium, so I’m happy,” Fellaini told Sky Sports.

“When I started the campaign with Everton, I looked forward for a transfer and in the end I am happy.

“I look forward to playing with the players. I need to work hard for my place. I want to win something with Manchester. I want to play a lot of games and win a trophy.

“It will be tough, every year it is tough for the big teams. But I think Manchester United have quality to win the trophy. I look forward to this.

“It’s a big step for me. But I have played for five years in England, I know the league and I know the players, so I don’t think I will have a problem with this move.”
