Fellaini's Manchester United objective: 'Score goals, win trophies'

David Moyes' one recruit of the summer wants to repay the boss' faith in him by finding the net as often as possible.

Marouane Fellaini, 25, is 'very, very happy,' following his £27.5m last-minute transfer from erstwhile employer Everton to new club Manchester United, who he hopes to 'score a lot of goals' for throughout the season and for the duration of his contract.

'It’s a big moment for me,' the Belgium international, who had to submit an eleventh hour transfer request at Goodison Park in order to secure his exit, said to ManUtd.com. 'I waited for a long time, I’ve worked hard for this and I’m very happy to join this great club. It’s the biggest club in the world… I tried everything to join.'

He continued: 'It’s been difficult, a very long day. I waited to the end… I know the situation, but this day has been very long.'

In what is perhaps a telling revelation as to what position Fellaini will fill in the first-team, the Brussels-born player said: 'I hope I can score a lot of goals for Manchester United.

When I was young it was a dream to play for Manchester United. Now I’m here so I’ll try to give my best to the club. I want to win trophies. That’s the most important thing.'
