Odds slashed on Man United flop returning to Everton
Marouane Fellaini has struggled to rediscover his best form since heading to Manchester United in 2013 for the sizeable sum of £27.5m, and the Belgian looks increasingly likely to reunite with former club Everton this summer.
With the Red Devils missing out on Champions League football and Jose Mourinho – the hot favourite for the Old Trafford hotseat – reportedly not keen on the midfielder, the odds of a return to Goodison Park have tumbled from 8/1 to 7/2.
West Ham (6/1) are second-favourites to secure Fellaini’s signature, and the lure of plying his trade at the Hammers’ new Olympic Stadium home could prove tempting for the former Standard Liege man.
It’s 10s that Leicester City swoop for the imposing midfielder and the Premier League-winning Foxes could lure Fellaini to the east Midlands with the promise of Champions League football.
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old is 16/1 to jeopardise his cult hero status with the blue half of Merseyside by joining Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
Man United are next in action on Saturday as they face Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final.
Louis van Gaal’s men are 3/4 to win, with Palace 4/1 and 12/5 for a draw after 90 minutes.
And those backing Fellaini to enhance his Old Trafford reputation by scoring anytime can do so at 19/5.
