Fellaini pictured on crutches, Napoli move for Man United midfielder now unlikely
- Updated: August 20, 2014
The Sun have a picture exclusive on their back page today and Manchester United fans are unlikely to be too happy about it.
Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is pictured in crutches with a huge protective boot over his left leg.
The Belgian came on for the final 23 minutes of Manchester United’s 2-1 home defeat to Swansea on Saturday.
It is not clear whether Fellaini picked up the injury in the Premier League match or in Manchester United training.
A goal against Valencia in Manchester United’s final pre-season match last week had suggested Fellaini would fight for his place in Louis van Gaal’s first team at Old Trafford.
Fellaini has been heavily linked with a move to Napoli this summer, perhaps on loan.
Napoli’s draw with Athletic Bilbao on Tuesday night in the Champions League play-offs may also affect their chances of bringing in big name players.
