Fellaini Will Not Join Arsenal Or Leave Everton – Roberto Martinez


Few days ago, the Times new paper ran with a story that claims Arsenal is set to bid for Everton’s Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini. The report has it that the gunners will be looking for Match is £24 million release clause. However, new Everton boss Roberto Martinez has come out to say the Everton man will not be leaving Goodison Park.

“I don’t think it is an issue at all with Marouane.

Transfer speculation is unstoppable when you have been as successful as Everton. You will always get other teams who admire and want to take your best players. That’s normal and happens everywhere. It happens at Real Madrid, at Manchester United and Everton.

You are not talking about a player who is out of the squad or in negotiations with another club. I won’t look to speak to him about this because there is nothing to speak about.

What I want is him to be ready for the next season, to be ready to take an important role at the club and understand that it is a big season for him.”

The Belgian has been strongly linked with a move away from Goodison park with Chelsea, Manchester United ( where is former boss is now manager ) the likeliest destination before the rumoured bid of Arsenal last week.

However, it should be noted that with the release clause in fellaini’s contract, Martinez will be powerless to prevent the big Belgian from leaving if any club ( hopefully Arsenal ) matches his release clause.

  1. Martinez, in this case, is a barking dog! His experience in football should suffice to make him aware that the moment a release clause is inserted into a player’s contract, the club would be under obligation to sell if the get-out clause is triggered. He should only pray that Fellaini decides against moving on. But if he doesn’t, whoever wants him and is able to pay the asking price, WILL LAND HIM, NO DOUBT!!

  2. Before and since the end of the season, every good player is connected to Arsenal but nothing has happened, So can you guys stop your wishful wishes and have some clear connection before any notes? I acn also wake and say Carzola is for medical at Man u or Wilshire is seen with Mourinoh etc

    Can Arsenal spot one key player, say Fellaini and stick to him with a concrete offer and we see the results. If he refuses or offer tough demands, we shall understand that they tried. But everyday everyone interested in a player connects him to Arsenal, any one who hates Arsenal player connects him to another club and anyone who wants attention will connect a key Arsenal player to some where else.

    Can we have some order and sense since we know that the market in Premiership will be opened in July, let us be respectiful.
