​Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has agreed to join Serie A club AC Milan this month, according to Italian publication ​Corriere ​della Sera.


Louis van Gaal's side are reported to have rejected an initial approach from the Rossoneri to take the Belgian on loan, but Milan have returned with a reported £15m offer and both United and Fellaini are prepared to do business. Fellaini initially joined United shortly after David Moyes arrived at Old Trafford in the summer of 2013.

Though he's been a key player at certain points since his arrival - notably through United's good patch of form in the final third of last season - he has recently fallen out of favour with current manager Louis van Gaal. Fellaini has made only ten league appearances this season and doesn't appear to fit in with the Dutchman's tactical set up.


Should the £15m deal go through, United would be making a massive loss on the player as they initially paid Everton £27.5m for him two-and-a-half years ago. However, Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani has appeared to ​rule out any deal actually happening this month, stating that the move isn't practical with the club's current situation.


He said: "We have seven central midfielders and if nobody leaves then we can't bring anyone else in. Fellaini is an interesting player and I've always liked him, but it's impossible in the current situation."
