Manchester United are prepared to part ways with the services of Marouane Fellaini, with interest from Milan, Porto and Guangzhou Evergrande growing, according to reports from Italy.

Marouane Fellaini was formerly linked with Milan over the summer when he was a free agent, but he was later convinced to pen down a new contract by Jose Mourinho.

However, the midfielder has fallen down the pecking order following the exit of former manager Mourinho and rumours are that caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to release him.
