The Premier League has long been described as the most exciting league in the world, and that is often due to the exceptional managerial talent on display, as well as the world-class players that the English top flight attracts.

There is also an element of showmanship and pantomime, and players like Marouane Fellaini fit perfectly into that mould as players in the league. Unfortunately for fans of football, Manchester United, and a general tendency to elbow people in the face, the Belgian is set to leave the Red Devils, according to the Metro.

Fellaini made the move to Manchester from Everton back in 2013, reuniting with manager David Moyes, but many feared for the midfielder’s game time once the Scottish coach was sacked.

Under Jose Mourinho however the Belgian international had become a stalwart, despite not starting every game, and an important man to be introduced from the bench to help United win games late on.

Lately however Fellaini has fallen out of favour, and his substitution just seven minutes after entering the fray from the bench against Tottenham seems to have been the final straw.

Galatasaray seem to be the front runners to grab the midfielder, who has netted three goals in 12 league appearances this season, and many will be sad to see him go.
