“Best news ever”, “Please let it happen” – Man Utd fans react hilariously as Arsenal attempt to sign Red Devils star

Marouane Fellaini

Arsenal are set to have discussions with Marouane Fellaini as the Belgian’s contract at Old Trafford expires at the end of the month.

Foot 365 and RFI Radio Foot journalist Patrick Juliard (h/t The Express) claims that the former Everton man will meet the Gunners representatives this week.

“The councillors of the #Fellaini Hotel have an appointment at the beginning of the week with representatives of #Arsenal.

“Selected by Belgium for the World Cup, Manchester United midfielder will be free on June 30th.”

Fellaini’s future has been a hot topic of discussion among United fans as we are a little thin in central midfield with Michael Carrick retiring at the end of last season.

With Unai Emery coming becoming the new manager of Arsenal, this could be seen as a statement of intent should he be able to complete the deal for the tough midfielder.

Twitter, however, was filled with reactions on the proposed deal and here are some of the best.

  • ManofKent2015 (the real one)

    In others news Unai Emery has been spotted outside Finsbury Park tube station with a stray mongrel on a string lead with his cap on the floor bashing out ‘Y Viva Espana’ on the spoons in a desperate effort to obtain additional funds for his transfer budget.

    Rumours that local vagrants have reported him to the police for stealing their pitch. have not been corroborated as the police refused to comment on an ongoing investigation……….

      Meanwhile back at the Traf:
      The Specious One was seen burning £100 notes in a flaming rubbish barrel at midfield. Shoveling bundles furiously to ensure he will have burned through another £250M before the Summer transfer window closes in 3 months time.

      Or possibly? Buy Lewandowski, Griezmann, AND Bale– in an effort to determine how best to misuse all three– prematurely truncating at least two of their careers. Oh and bench Lukaku, Rashford, AND Martial. As those three arte Jose’s Phase II of having their spirit quashed and careers smashed into splinters.

      All while not winning shite next season either.

        Lol, jw1. I bet the self-styled ‘special one’ will be doing all he can to get Fellaini change his mind, seeing as he’s brought him on late in games, to save his bacon. But, he will probably rather look for the next over-rated and over-priced player to hoodwink the United Board with, while smiling, while on a Yacht cruise, with the player’s agent, afterwards.

          Along with “Ibra’s Traveling Circus!” no doubt.
