Jose Mourinho is anxious Marouane Fellaini will leave Manchester United in the summer as contract talks continue to drag on.

Arsenal are believed to head a queue of Premier League and European clubs interested in Fellaini, including Turkish teams Besiktas and Galatasaray and Italian outfits Inter Milan and Napoli.

Moves to Turkey have already been touted, while Inter in Italy are also said to be taking an active interest in the midfielder's situation, who will be free to talk to other clubs in January.

"And I respect the board, because the decisions and discussions are under their control, so I just wait, wishing they will have an understanding".

Ahead of United's match tomorrow at home to Brighton, Mourinho said: "I'm not involved in contracts, deals".

The 30-year-old has endured a hard relationship with United supporters at times but has become an influential player under the Portuguese.

Despite nod, No UK release for Padmavati
Several organizations across the country have been opposing the release of the movie, whose release has been deferred. Sharma, in his complaint, has alleged that the film hurts sentiments of many, not alone Rajputs.

"I respect both the players and the board".

Fellaini has prospered as much as any player under the 18 months of Mourinho's management, having been transformed from a player who was unpopular with Old Trafford supporters into something of a cult favourite with fans. Mourinho will be without central defenders Phil Jones and Eric Bailly when they host Brighton & Hove Albion, but midfielder Paul Pogba will make his third start in a row. Step by step, minute after minute, match after match.

"His impact on the pitch is always positive, he's a good influence, doesn't change if he's playing or not playing".

The Red Devils trail rivals Manchester City by eight points and need to maintain a manageable gap before they play Pep Guardiola's men in early December. "We have four competitions to play and let's go step by step, match after match", he said.

"For us Brighton, Watford and Arsenal is a very important week but let's focus on Brighton, ninth in the table, good team, hard to beat, don't concede many goals, has a mix of physicality, aggression, quality creativity and I think Chris [Hughton] is doing a great job".
