Marouane Fellaini

Man Utd duo linked with PL club, United take striker on trial

Sunderland manager David Moyes is planning moves for Manchester United duo of Marouane Fellaini and Adnan Januzaj, according to Sky Sports.

Sunderland newly-appointed manager David Moyes has previously worked with Fellaini at Everton and Man Utd and is keen to bring the midfielder to Stadium of Light.

The Belgium international, who followed Moyes to United in a deal worth £27.5 million in 2013, attracted heavy criticism from United fans last season and was deemed not good enough for the club.

He was linked with a move to Serie A earlier this year and has been touted to depart from Old Trafford this summer.

Meanwhile, winger Adnan Januzaj is also attracting interests from the Black Cats.

Januzaj first shot to limelight under David Moyes at United but has failed to follow up on the initial promise he displayed in his breakthrough season.

He signed for Borussia Dortmund for a season-long loan move last summer, but he was called back by United in January after starting only three games for the Bundesliga club.

When asked about the possibility of signing the duo, Moyes said: “If anyone of those players want to join us, I would be happy to have them because they are excellent players.

“We are interested, but I am sure a host of other clubs are too.”


Manchester United have handed a trial to Curacao international Liandro Martis, according to Manchester Evening News.

The 20-year-old, formerly of Feyenoord, was spotted by United scouts while on trial with Oldham in July. He reportedly trained with United U-23 squad at Carrington last week.

The winger has already attracted interest from Premier League champions Leicester City.

Martis has revealed that he has been offered a deal by Oldham, but he is still contemplating his options amid interested from Man Utd and Leicester City.

“I went into Leicester for a day and felt comfortable and got an offer,” said Martis. “Then I went into Manchester United for a week and received good feedback from Warren Joyce and could have earned a deal had I waited, but I just want to get my career started.

“I am confident in my ability. I’ve played a number of games to obtain fitness and have done well. I played against League Two Crewe and scored and laid on an assist and then played in a game with Tranmere where I help set up a number of goals before I went Oldham and scored against a championship Preston. Oldham have offered me a deal and we have been in negotiations for two weeks.

“I am nearing a decision on my future and I want to make the right decision for the next stage of my career.”
