Rooney’s demise just might spark Fellaini’s chances to shine

It is evident that not many players will be ‘loved’ or even get away with on transfer request and angling a move to Chelsea on another occasion.

The Manchester United captain, who earns £210,000-a-week at the age of 28 has failed to live up to the expectations after the departure of Robin Van Persie.

After much debate, Rooney won the battle against Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao to become the first choice centre forward for this season even after scoring 1 away goal in nine months, which was against a League One side Preston back in February in the FA Cup.

After such stats, Louis Van Gaal has publically proposed the idea of having Fellaini as their forward who enjoyed much of the freedom with David Moyes at Everton.

Fellaini, who has failed to make a permanent place for himself,the incumbent is not exactly the marquee signing many supporters would have hoped for. Instead the Belgianwill be tasked with operating as a striker for Louis van Gaal’s side for much of the campaign.
