Marouane Fellaini signs for Manchester United for £27.5 million


Marouane Fellaini has clinched his move from Everton to Manchester United.

As seemed inevitable, Manchester United have completed the signing of Marouane Fellaini from Everton in the final moments of deadline day.

The deal is said to have cost United £27.5 million, more than the £23.5 million in the Belgian's release clause which expired last month.

United had two bids for Fellaini knocked back by Everton over the past fortnight, with the midfielder submitting a transfer request to force through the move late on.

Fellaini signed for Everton in 2008 for £15 million and joins former manager David Moyes, as the club's most expensive signing of the summer.

United fans are you happy with the deal?
