Why Marouane Fellaini agreed to sign Man United contract



Marouane Fellaini is a name that courts controversy among United Faithfuls as many believing he doesn’t fit a club the calibre of United while others appreciate the unique skill set that makes him a handful to defenders.

The Belgium international  signed a contract this summer extending his stay by an additional two years after protracted negotiations.

News filtering from Belgium have revealed the reason why the Belgium international choose to remain at Old Trafford despite more lucrative offers at his behest. According to Belgium tabloid Het Nieuwsblad the towering midfielder rejected the opportunity of higher offers due to his commitments with the Belgium national team

The Belgium Golden generation won Bronze at the just concluded world cup with many of their star players in their late twenties to early thirties. However, the lure of competing in the Euros in two years time is too much for Fellaini to be playing in a lower league.
