Marouane Fellaini thanks Everton fans after Manchester United move

Belgian takes to Twitter to praise Blues.

Marouane Fellaini has thanked Everton and the Everton fans for all their help and support during his time at the club.

The 25-year-old completed his much anticipated transfer to United late on Monday, with Everton receiving a hefty £27.5million fee for his services.

Fellaini is understandably excited about his move to Old Trafford and the opportunities that may bring, but he also took time out to remember the Toffees.

Fellaini leaves with goodwill from most Evertonians. The midfielder has been totally professional throughout this whole saga, never forgetting his responsibilities to Everton.

While other players go on strike, pick up ‘mysterious’ injuries or take to the media to force through moves, Fellaini has kept his head down and got on with it.

The generous fee also means Everton fans are not mourning his departure too much. David Moyes has made a right hash of this transfer window, particularly when it comes to Fellaini.

In allowing his £23.4millon release clause to expire he clearly felt he could get him on the cheap – hence his ‘derisory’ £28million double bid for Fellaini and Leighton Baines.

The eventual transfer fee represents a job well done for the Everton board as well as some fudged negotiating on Moyes’ part.

With the cash Roberto Martinez has also been able to add to the squad, so despite Fellaini's departure, the team actually looks stronger than it did at the start of the season.
