Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng Taishan sign Marouane Fellaini from Manchester United for £10.4m

Marouane Fellaini has completed his £10.4million move from Manchester United to Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng Taishan.

The midfielder passed a medical on Thursday afternoon and the paperwork has now been completed with United confirming that Fellaini has left with a post on social media.

The Belgium international is due to earn £235,000 per week and will hook up with his new team-mates later this month to join in their preparations for the new Chinese Super League campaign which gets underway in March. 

FELLAINI’S MAN UNITED CAREER

Games: 177

Goals: 22

Assists: 12

Trophies:

1x FA Cup

1x EFL Cup 

1x Europa League 

1x Community Shield 

Fellaini had been in Belgium this week receiving treatment on a calf injury but flew out to China on deadline day to agree terms with Shandong. 

The 31-year-old had been in high demand with the midfielder keen to begin a new chapter in his career after being frozen out by interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Fellaini, who last summer signed a new and improved deal until 2020, was a key figure at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho but featured just once under Solksjaer in United’s seven Premier League games.

He leaves United having made 177 appearances in the five-and-a-half season he spent with the club and helped them to win four trophies – the Emirates FA Cup, FA Community Shield, League Cup and UEFA Europa League.
