Marouane Fellaini has been told he should leave Manchester United in January by Belgium boss Marc Wilmots, the Express reports.
The 27 year-old joined the Red Devils back in 2013, following his manager David Moyes from Everton in a reported £27.5 Million move, but has failed to earn a regular starting place under Louis Van Gaal this season.
The Dutch boss signed Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin in the summer, further limiting his opportunities to play in his favoured midfield role, and his only Premier League start this term he was used as a makeshift striker in the absence of Wayne Rooney.
Fellaini has now been urged to find himself a new club from the winter, with Euro 2016 coming up at the end of the season, and no guarantee of a place in the Belgium team if he cannot secure regular first-team action.
International boss Wilmots said: “A player who does not play for his club is annoying for a coach.
“Fellaini could play to support the attack, as the No.6. He has very good technique, very good ability to track back and recover. Maybe he will try to find a new challenge in January, if it is possible.”
The former Everton man could have been set for another rare start this weekend with Rooney missing out again through injury, but Fellaini is also sidelined currently.
