In a surprise transfer deadline day move Manchester United have agreed to let midfielder Marouane Fellaini go out on a season long loan to the their ex-manager David Moyes.
‘I’ve worked with Marouane at two clubs’ said Moyes today ‘and I’ve always found him to be a very useful. The fans at Manchester United don’t seem to appreciate him so I thought he might like to join me for a loan-spell and help with some odd-jobs about the place. The thing about Marouane is he’s versatile. For instance his height will come in very handy painting that damp patch on the spare room ceiling and his head would make an ideal brush for sweeping the chimney, he could even drive the wife to the hairdressers on a Friday so that I can get on the golf course a bit earlier’.
United manager Louis Van Gaal told reporters that he was happy for Fellaini to get some experience away from Old Trafford, ‘he’s not in my thoughts for now so why not let him go on loan? If he can get some good handyman experience under his belt then he can help dismantle the trophy room at the end of the season, its win win – and we haven’t heard that phrase around here for a while’.
