Considering Manchester United’s impressive displays at the start of this season, many fans were already confident the premier league trophy is coming home to Old Trafford when the season ends.
But things haven’t been the same – at least for now. Man City are now eleven points ahead, plus Pep Guardiola’s boys seem unstoppable – winning 14 premier league games in a row!
However, Jose Mourinho ought to remain optimistic about the title – though it won’t be something easy to grab as far as this season is concerned.
The Portuguese tactician should take advantage of the upcoming January transfer window to bring in new legs, and should also try to hold on to some certain key players in his team.
Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini has evolved into one of the most important members at Old Trafford, but the former Everton player will be out of contract next summer.
If he failed to put pen on paper for a new deal with the red devils before the end of this year, he is allowed to agree on pre-contract with any club in January.
There are new reports that manager Jose Mourinho has held discussions with the player and is trying to persuade him to stay at Manchester United.
The Sun made it known that the club have decided to offer the Belgian a two year deal that will allow him to earn $173,000 each week.
This season so far in 12 appearances for the red devils, Marouane has scored 4 goals and has provided one assist.
