The midfielder cost United £27m last summer but failed to win over some United supporters as he started just 12 Premier League games for the club.

But Fellaini has been a mainstay of the Belgium side which takes on Argentina in the quarter-finals of the World Cup tomorrow, scoring in his country's opening game against Algeria and playing every minute since.

Asked whether he had proved a point with his performances in Brazil, Fellaini told Sky Sports News: "I don't have to prove (anything) - I've been a professional footballer for eight years."

And questioned on whether he would still be at Old Trafford next season, he said: "We will see after the World Cup."

Both Belgium and Argentina have won every game on their way to the last eight, although the South Americans will start as slight favourites with Sky Bet - largely because they have four-times Ballon d'Or winner Lionel Messi in their side.

Fellaini said: "Everyone knows Messi is the best player, but we have good players as well. We play all together and we will try to play well on Saturday."

I think Fellaini, needs to learn the meaning of decision making. It seems United have already decided to get rid of him ergo his future is not on hold and he is on his way. @Harry, I'm not sure if Hull have 15m to buy Fellaini, my bet is wherever Moyes gets a new job they will sign him so yous probably need Moyes to get a new job pronto.

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? 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...
