Marouane Fellaini will leave Everton soon, that's if the Belgium international gets his way.
It's just typical at the point when we run a few articles discussing just how promising the future at Goodison Park looks, with an entertaining squad assembled by David Moyes that this bombshell is dropped during the international window.
Marouane Fellaini has often been linked with moves away from Everton and has in the past been an apparent target for Chelsea and Manchester City, but he recently signed a new £75,000-per-week, five-year-deal at Goodison Park, suggesting to some that he was happy to see just how far he could go with Everton.
Now we know in the past that the likes of Johnny Heitinga have gone away on international duty, said something that's been lost in translation and context and appeared to want away from Everton.
So as this is the first instance of that, then the benefit of the doubt could be handed to Fellaini, at least until he gets the chance to comment on it in England to the English media.
But for now take this comment for what it's worth: 'I am just starting my fifth season at Everton, this will be one of my last,' he told Het Nieuwsblad.
Not too bad, until he added: 'I have seen everything. In January or at the end of the season I will turn to another club or championship.'
I can't see how that remark has been lost in translation! It's pretty clear, it's a come and get me plea once the transfer window opens.
Fingers crossed that with him signing a long contract he doesn't have a small release clause written in the small print and David Moyes can work his magic in the transfer window to find a replacement.
