Marouane Fellaini is a target for new Sunderland boss David Moyes, The Sun reports.
The Manchester United midfielder was taken to Old Trafford by Moyes during his short spell in charge at the former English champions, and is now hoping to sign him for Sunderland this time.
Moyes was appointed Sam Allardyce’s successor last week after the latter was named England manager and with the new season just two weeks away, the Scot is hoping he can prise Fellaini away from Old Trafford.
The former Everton manager has already signed the Belgian two times before, first at Everton in 2008, and then at Manchester United in 2013 and if he succeeds in his latest hunt for the player, it will make it the third time he is signing the midfielder.
While Fellaini has not been mentioned as one of those that have been told they can leave Old Trafford by Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, his future may still be uncertain given the imminent arrival of Paul Pogba from Juventus.
The 28-year old joined United for £27.5m in 2013, but the Black Cats will expect to get him for a lot less than the Red Devils got him from Everton and they are hoping they can strike a deal in the region of £13m.
