Manchester United media round-up: What van Gaal told Fellaini to help him revitalise form

A round up of news stories this morning related to Manchester United.

Marouane Fellaini has been quoted by the Daily Express suggesting the main reason for his Manchester United form.

The Belgian seems to have turned things around after a difficult start to life at Old Trafford.

He feels the confidence and momentum he now has, has been created by the faith shown to him by manager Louis van Gaal.

“Van Gaal told me, 'Prove yourself and we'll see'. Now they are counting on me,” he said.

The Metro has reported that Manchester United have made a £4 million per year offer to sign midfielder Nigel De Jong.

The Dutchman is thought to have been a long term target for the Old Trafford club and is someone who gets on well with current manager Louis van Gaal.

The paper claims that his contract with AC Milan will be allowed to run down and expire.

Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney has been quoted by the Daily Mail suggesting things are still in the club’s hands with regards to the top four.

The win against Liverpool before the international break has allowed United to develop a cushion, which they will now be looking to defend.

The ultimate aim for the club this season remains getting into the Champions League for the next campaign.

“I think there are still eight games left. We are in a good position at the minute so it's in our own hands, so have to make sure we do it,” he said.
