Marouane Fellaini insists his destiny is at Everton.
Marouane Fellaini says he wants to stay at Everton, despite interest from Manchester United and Chelsea.
The Belgian international was rumoured to be set to follow former manager David Moyes to Old Trafford this summer but, speaking after Belgium’s 4-2 over the USA on Wednesday, the 25-year-old hinted he was happy at Everton.
“My destiny is with Everton, it’s as simple as that,” he told The Metro.
“After that, you never know what can happen, but we still speak of one of the greatest English clubs.
“The framework and the basics are there. It is in this sense that I mean the departure of the coach does not change anything for me.
“Honestly, the departure of the coach does not change. He received a good challenge and I understand that he has accepted.
“But he never told me about his project to take me with him to United. It is only in the press that I read it.”
Fellaini has been a huge success for the Toffees since joining from Standard Liege in 2008, scoring 25 goals and becoming the main target man for the classy side built by Moyes.
The 25-year old has become a fan favourite at Goodison Park, and will cement his place among recent greats to play for Everton if he keeps his word and remains a Blue this summer.
