Man United’s Fellaini Moves to Chinese Club, Shandong Luneng
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has completed his transfer to Chinese Super League club Shandong Luneng.
The Belgian flew to China on Thursday to complete the deal that brings to an end five and half years at United.
Fellaini, 31, joined United from Everton for £27m in 2014 when he became the first significant signing after Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure as manager.
He signed a new two-year deal last summer that was due to run until 2020.
“Everybody at United thanks Marouane for his service and wishes him well for the future as he completes his move to Shandong Luneng Taishan FC in China,” the club said in a statement.
The Belgium international managed just three minutes of Premier League action under interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. He was signed for United by his former Everton manager David Moyes after making 141 Premier League appearances for the Goodison Park club, scoring 25 goals and making 14 assists.
Fellaini also played under Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, scoring 22 goals in 177 appearances in all competitions.
He helped United win the 2016 FA Cup final as well as the Europa League and League Cup in 2017.
