The Belgian international will soon reveal whether he will remain with the Red Devils or move elsewhere

Marouane Fellaini has revealed he will soon announce his club future as his Manchester United contract runs down.

The midfielder’s deal with the Red Devils is set to expire at the end of the month, and his refusal to ink new terms throughout the 2017-18 season has led to speculation he will depart Old Trafford.

The two sides have been an impasse over terms, with Fellaini saying in May the club missed an opportunity to renew his deal prior to last season, knowing that he now has strong bargaining power with his ability to depart on a free this summer.

Fellaini has not closed the door on staying with the Red Devils, however, and the 30-year-old midfielder said on Sunday he was nearing a decision on his future.

The Belgian international, who is currently with his national side at the World Cup, answered: "You will know soon" when asked if he would return to Manchester United next season.

The Red Devils have already added a reinforcement to their midfield in the form of Brazil international Fred, landing him in a £52.5 million ($70m) deal from Shakhtar Donetsk.

However with the retirement of Michael Carrick, Fellaini remains a figure who would hold a place in Jose Mourinho’s plans.

Fellaini has played the last five seasons with Manchester United, after moving at the end of the 2013-14 summer window, following former Red Devils manager David Moyes to Old Trafford from Everton. 

The midfielder did not feature in Belgium's World Cup opener, a 3-0 win over Panama, but came off the bench in the 59th minute of his nation's 5-2 win over Tunisia.
