Everton star Marouane Fellaini has admitted he could leave Goodison Park for a bigger club this summer.

The Belgian international has seen his stock rise over the last couple of years, with Real Madrid and Chelsea some of the clubs linked to the promising midfielder.

The 24-year-old has signed a new deal at Goodison Park last season, but explains he could leave the Toffees for greener pastures in the summer transferwindow.

“If I have to go, I will go, if not, I repeat, I am at Everton,” Fellaini told Belgian radio RTBF.

“If an ambitious club comes for me? Why not, just to gain experience, but I am on vacation right now, I do not give it too much attention.”

Fellaini admits he wouldn’t mind joining Chelsea, with all the international teammates already at Stamford Bridge.

“They talked about me in Chelsea? If I had to go there, I would have several friends – Hazard, Lukaku, De Bruyne, Courtois…There are many Belgians! It’s good for the national team.”

Fellaini has just finished his fourth full season at Goodison Park and this could be the right time for him to leave the Toffees.

The Belgian has amassed a total of 107 Premier League appearances for Everton, and scored 14 goals in the process.


Gerrard is the best: Cabaye

Yohan Cabaye, Newcastle v Swansea

France midfielder Yohan Cabaye has admitted he fears rejuvenated Steven Gerrard the most out of England’s exciting squad, ahead of their game on Monday.
Newcastle star Cabaye has admitted his side is expecting a tough game against The Three Lions and Manchester United striker, Danny Welbeck, who was on target against Belgium, is also a cause for concern for Les Bleus.
“I am expecting a big fight and a very big game,” Cabaye said. “We are ready. Even with England’s absentees, they will have a big team to beat France. We are in the position of outsiders and I think the English are more favorites than us in this group.
“Steven Gerrard is the soul of this team. Even though he has not played much this season, we will be wary,” Cabaye added about the fit-again England captain.
“Also, I like Danny Welbeck. After that, it is certain that the absence of Wayne Rooney will be important for them. Rooney’s absence will be a chance for us but we will be wary of his replacement.”
