Manchester United are close to sealing a deal to sign Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini for a fee in the region of £36m, according to a report.

Manchester United are reportedly closing in on a £36m deal to sign Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini.

The Red Devils boss David Moyes is finally set to land his first player as United manager after a summer-long pursuit of the Belgium international.

Everton will agree a deal in the region of £36m as well as take United midfielder Jesse Lingard on loan for the rest of the season, reports The People.

Moyes is also hopeful on securing the signing of Fellaini's teammate Leighton Baines before the close of the transfer window.

United are in action later today when they take on Liverpool.
