AC Milan are ready to revive their interest in Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
The Italian club were interested in signing the Belgian international in the summer, but, in the end, Fellaini was persuaded to sign a two-year extension to his United contract by his manager at the time, Jose Mourinho.
However, something of a fringe player under Mourinho, he has found himself a bit-part contributor under his Ole Gunnar Solskjaer which has called his future at United into question once again.
Now, according to Belgian news outlet Nieuwsblad the Milanese club are preparing a bid for the 31-year old, and are keen to sign him in the January window.
They are likely not to be the only suitors for him either, with Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande and Portugal’s FC Porto also said to be in the running as well.
Although United have not commented on the situation, they may be tempted by the right offer, especially if there is any substance to the rumours linking them with a move for Philippe Coutinho.
