Mirror Sport is reporting that Manchester United is prepared to sell midfielder Marouane Fellaini in January to Turkish side Besiktas for over $10 million.

Last week, Besiktas executive Metin Albayra confirmed the club’s interest in the Belgium international, and it seems as though a deal will be struck for Fellaini’s services.

Fellaini has scored three goals in seven Premier League matches this season, and was recently singled out positively by Mourinho following United’s defeat to Chelsea.

However, it appears Fellaini’s days at Old Trafford are numbered.
