Marouane Fellaini: Has been linked with move to Chelsea

Fellaini fuelled rumours tipping him for a Stamford Bridge switch on Saturday when he told Chelsea to make a bid if they want to sign him.

The Belgian international has long been linked with a move to West London but the Blues failed to come forward in last month's transfer window.

The 25-year-old has three years left to run on his contract at Goodison Park and manager David Moyes has spoken of his desire to keep him at the club.

Mirallas, Fellaini's Everton and Belgium team-mate, has also called on the towering midfielder to stay put.

He told The Sun: "We definitely want him to stay.

"He's a real strength. Having Marouane in your team helps because he scares the opposition - although he doesn't scare me because we're always on the same team!"

Mirallas says Fellaini was a major factor in his decision to join Everton from Olympiakos last summer, adding: "He convinced me Everton was the place for me."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
