Marouane Fellaini recently arrived at Manchester United and spoke out to reveal his reasons for leaving his former club Everton. United paid £27.5 million to bring the Belgian to Old Trafford and he became the only big name signing United manager David Moyes was able to bring to the club this summer.

Fellaini felt it was time to leave Everton after spending five years there under David Moyes, who managed Everton for the past 11 years before replacing the now retired Sir Alex Ferguson this summer. The 25 year old midfielder wants to accomplish more in his career and believes signing for a prestigious club like United is how he will achieve his goals, revealing that he will work hard to help the club try to win a title this year.

“This is a new story for me now – I want to win trophies and play in the Champions League, and with Manchester United I can do that,” Fellaini said, according to Metro.

“I know Everton wanted to keep me, but I played there for five years, and the time has come for me to leave. Will we win the Premier League title this season? I really hope so. I will do everything I can to make it happen.”

David Moyes spoke on the signing of Fellaini, warning Premier League clubs that the tall midfielder will be a dangerous player for United. Moyes spoke to the versatility of Fellaini, stating his delight that the Belgian can play anywhere in the center of the pitch.

“Marouane is not someone you want to be playing against,” Moyes said, according to Metro.

“He has attributes other people don’t have. And with those qualities he has, I am sure he will be a big player for Manchester United. He can play higher up the field if we need him to, just behind a main striker. He can play as a defensive or holding midfield player. He is comfortable in any position in the middle of the field. I am glad we have got him.”

Fellaini is currently away on international duty but is likely to make his United debut on Saturday, September 14th when the Red Devils host Crystal Palace at Old Trafford.
