Marouane Fellaini Club Career
Fellaini played youth football for Anderlecht, R.A.E.C. Mons, Royal Francs Borains and Charleroi S.C. before joining Standard Liège. After winning the Belgian First Division and the Ebony Shoe as a Liège player, he moved to England to join Everton. At Everton, he was the club’s Young Player of the Season for 2008–09, when the club was losing finalists in the FA Cup. After five years at Everton, he transferred to Manchester United in a deal worth £27.5 million in September 2013.
Marouane Fellaini joined the Chinese club Shandong Leung from Manchester United and his new, lucrative contract will see him treble what he earned at Manchester United.
Fellaini, 31, signed a 2-year contract at the Chinese club with an option to extend a further year after spending five and a half years at Manchester United.
The Sun reported that the Belgian midfielder’s contract at Shandong will see him net a cool £365,000 a week, which is over three times the £120,000 he earned at Manchester United and even more than the £290,000 that Paul Pogba earns per week.
Ever since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over as Manchester United boss, Fellaini had found himself out of favor at the club, playing only 31 minutes under the Norwegian. Fellaini had only signed a new contract at the club in June of 2018 after Jose Mourinho insisted that the lanky midfielder stays at Old Trafford. However, after the Portuguese boss was sacked following United’s 3-1 defeat to Liverpool in Anfield, Fellaini didn’t play in a single league game under Solskjaer, making it an inevitability that he would leave the club.

In his first pre-season game of 2014–15, Fellaini came off the substitutes bench to score his first Manchester United goal in injury time, giving the club a 2–1 win over Valencia in Louis van Gaal’s first game at Old Trafford as manager.
On 18 August, his first match for the club in the 2015–16 season, Fellaini scored the third goal in a 3–1 home victory over Club Brugge in the first leg of the Champions League play-offs. Fellaini’s first goal of the 2017–18 campaign came against Leicester City, in a 2-0 win on 26 August 2017. He then scored a header against Basel, helping United win the Champions League group stage game 3-0 on 12 September.
After a 4-0 win against Crystal Palace, José Mourinho praised his performances, saying “He had to be a strong character. He is a fighter, a guy with lots of pride and I am really pleased I helped him reach this level and change the perception the fans have now. I’m really happy for him”
