Manchester United will not be panicked into selling Marouane Fellaini in January even though the Belgium midfielder has rejected a new contract at Old Trafford.

United tabled a new two-year deal for the Belgium global in September but despite Jose Mourinho making it clear he remains a vital member of his squad, Fellaini wants to move on.

Fellaini isn't happy with the contract he's been offered by United.

Player contract regulations stipulate they can negotiate a transfer six months before their current agreement expires.

Jose Mourinho now sees Valencia's Carlos Soler as his main January transfer target, in what is likely to be a limited window for Manchester United.

However, the report also claims that Arsenal are interested in the Belgian alongside Inter Milan and Besiktas.

Arsenal are watching Marouane Fellaini's situation at Manchester United.

Galatasaray have a long-standing interest in Fellaini but a host of foreign and Premier League clubs are expected to jostle for his signature in the event Mourinho fails to persuade him to stay at United beyond a fifth season.

United playing hardball means that he is likely to remain at Old Trafford until June, dissuading fears of an early departure.

In total, 56 of Fellaini's 142 United appearances have come in the 15 months since Mourinho took charge and the manager has been a staunch supporter of the Belgian amid much conjecture from supporters and critics.
