Belgium international star Marouane Fellaini is reportedly close to putting pen to paper on a new contract at Manchester United, according to Transfermarketweb.

The Premier League side, who thrashed rock bottom Crystal Palace 4-0 at Old Trafford in the top-flight at the weekend, are set to reward the central midfielder with a new deal following his improving start to the 2017-18 campaign.

The 29-year-old, who has 76 international caps for his country, has scored four goals and provided one assist in eight appearances in all competitions for The Red Devils so far this season – helping his side sit joint-top of the Premier League standings, level on points (19) with arch rivals Manchester City.

Fellaini, who netted a brace against Palace on Saturday, has started United’s last three league games under manager Jose Mourinho, following three successive substitute appearances at the beginning of the term.
