Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has dismissed suggestions that Galatasaray are close to signing Marouane Fellaini this summer.
The Special One insists that the Belgium international is ‘too important’ for his squad after the 29-year-old found the scoresheet in the 3-0 friendly win over Valerenga on Sunday.
Galatasaray sporting director CenkUrgun recently told the press that the club would be pushing through a deal for Fellaini with the midfield enforcer heading through the Old Trafford exit door, he said: “There will be surprises, we are in talks with Fellaini. We have made an approach, we are close and if we get Fellaini we will end our pursuit of N’Diaye. We need a player like Fellaini who can shuttle around in midfield.”
However, following the Valerenga game, Mourinho has maintained his stance that Fellaini is not for sale while insisting the Turkish giants have a better chance of signing him than the Belgian in terms of probability, he said: “It’s easier for Galatasaray to get me than Marouane. If they need a manager, they have a chance, but Marouane? Forget it. He is too important to me.”
