Fellaini issues ultimatum to Everton

Fellaini issues ultimatum to Everton

It's fair to say that we all now know where Everton and Marouane Fellaini stand.

We've had the whispers and rumours of links to Chelsea and to Manchester City and we've had the somewhat lost in translation quotes when the midfielder is off on international duty with Belgium.

But in recent months the 24-year-old has been pretty clear and concise in what he wants to achieve over his career.

He wants to play at the highest level possible and at club level that's the Champions League. For a midfielder who could further develop into the best in the world it's hardly surprising.

When we initially bought him from Standard Liege in 2008 for £15million he was already being linked with the likes of Real Madrid.

So of course it would be nice for him to pledge his career to Everton, but perhaps unrealistic. In modern day football the best we can hope for his honesty and openness and that's what we've got from Fellaini.

In an ideal world you get the impression that he'd be pretty happy to stay at Goodison Park if he could achieve the honours that he would like to achieve with Everton. But if he can't, then perhaps he'll think to move on.

But the first challenge is the UEFA Champions League and with Everton's start to the Premier League season this year, who's to say that qualification is not a realistic possibility this season?

"I want to give everything for Everton, They brought me here from Standard Liege and gave me my chance to play in the Premier League, and I always want to repay them for that. he toldThe Echo.

He continued: "I had two big injuries here and they stuck by me and I worked very hard to come back from them. I feel good now in terms of my fitness.

"If Everton finish in the top four then I`m happy to stay because I want to play in the Champions League. I`d be happy to do that at Everton. I want to do that."

Cant talk for other Evertonians, but I felt this was always going to be the case before the start of the season, 25 now, and a player of his quality needs CL footy, hopefully it can be with Everton next season.

We have the skill to make it happen, barring injuries that is.
