The Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been linked with a move to Chelsea for many years, and the Stamford Bridge club certainly seems to be adding a Belgian backbone to the side recently of which Fellaini would be a welcome addition.
The big midfielder is quite happy to admit that he would like to join a club that plays in Europe regularly (and even wins lol!) but he is at pains to ensure that Everton fans don’t think that he is desparate to leave Goodison Park.
He said: “If I have got to go, I will go, if not, I repeat, I am at Everton,”
“I am ambitious. I want to play in the Champions League or in the Europa League. Last season we finished seventh with Everton, and we were not able to qualify for Europe, which was a shame.
“If an ambitious club comes in for me, why not, just to gain experience, but I’m on vacation right now, I do not give speculation too much attention.”
“Every year they say I’ll be transferred to the left or right. But I’m still at Everton.
“If it comes, I take it, if it does not come; I stay at Everton, where I am happy, and where I still have a four-year contract.
“Everything goes fast in football. You can be transferred tomorrow, as you can be in one or two years. For now, I’m on vacation. I will try to arrive fresh at the start of next season. Are there any concrete offers yet? If this is the case, I am not aware.”
Surely Chelsea don’t have any more room in the midfield after the arrival of Eden Hazard, but Fellaini’s strength would definitely he helpful for Chelsea in those rainy Tuesday nights in Stoke!
