Guangzhou, meanwhile, now lie in fifth place in the Super League, having suffered a mixed start to their bid to defend the title they have won for the last seven straight seasons. Liverpool and Manchester United, the country's two most successful clubs have, in particular - been quite active in the market whose combined total spending has already crossed the £100-million mark.

Two clubs from China are also interested in the attacking midfielder.

"Fellaini is out of contract this summer and looks set to leave Old Trafford, despite Jose Mourinho regularly looking to the 6′3" Belgian as a plan B off the bench for Manchester United last season.

Ray Parlour has backed Arsenal's pursuit of Manchester United contract rebel Marouane Fellaini.

But I think he's a good player, if he wants to join Arsenal I think it would be good news.

As far as Manchester United are concerned, there are no reports to suggest that Guangzhou have an option to make the move permanent, meaning they could again try to sign him in the winter window, if they choose to retain their interest in him. So I just hope he does get time. Fred is at his most comfortable deeper in midfield - averaging over 85% pass success rate in 2017/18 across all competitions and Brazilian to the core, at home with the ball on his feet which has been lacking at United a bit since the retirement of Scholes and now Michael Carrick. "And he was going to put the one in who was better".
