Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini is the club’s third-highest paid player, according to the Jose Mourinho’s spokesperson Eladio Parames.
“Here are two concrete examples of the fantastic work going on at Manchester United,” Parames penned in Portuguese sports publication Record.
“If (Marouane) Fellaini, who was at the end of his contract, had been renewed in proper time, he would not cost half of what he costs today.
“Mister Ed (Woodward) made him the third best-paid player in the entire squad. And the same is happening with (David) De Gea, whose contract could already have been renewed a year or two ago. But now, as his deal is at the end, if they want to continue with him they will have to pay a fortune. What beautiful management this is.”
