New Sunderland manager, David Moyes is planning to bring in two of his former players from Manchester United this summer. Adnan Junuzaj and Marouane Fellaini are tipped to leave Old Trafford this summer and the Stadium of Light is believed to be their next destination.
Moyes wants to bring in both the players on a permanent deal, but that would prove to be too expensive for the club. Manchester United want a transfer fee around $59.51 million for both the players, $26.45m for Fellaini and $33.06m for winger Januzaj, according to Mirror.
The Scotsman signed Fellaini from Everton for $37 million during his time as Manchester United manager, but the Belgian has since failed to make a mark at Old Trafford. Januzaj also made his debut under Moyes and had his best time as a player under him.
United manager, Jose Mourinho is happy to let Fellaini stay at Old Trafford but should an offer from Sunderland arrive, it would be a wise choice for the Belgium international to jump ship in search for more first-team opportunities.
Januzaj on the other hand has been told that he can go out on loan this summer. The Belgian will not feature in Mourinho’s plans next season and a move to Sunderland under his previous boss will aid in his football career.
Meanwhile, Moyes is inching closer to making right-back Domagoj Vida his first signing this summer since taking over as the Sunderland boss. The Dynamo Kiev defender was one of the star performers for his country in the Euro 2016 and will improve Sunderland’s defense.
Vida is valued at $6.6 million by Kiev and Moyes is extremely interested in signing the player as he will fix one problem area of his Sunderland team. The Scotsman is also looking to increase his attacking options as Jermain Defoe is carrying an injury heading into the new season.
