The resurgent Manchester United are currently bargaining with a Chinese club about the sale of its midfielder Marouane Fellaini.
Meanwhile the name of the club concerned has not been revealed but the Chinese transfer window will not close until 28 February.
According to report, United are refusing comments whether a fee has been agreed for the player.
The 31 year Belgian midfielder was the first major signing of the post Sir Alex Ferguson era, joining for £27.5m on deadline day in the 2013 summer transfer window.
The Belgian has found it so difficult to win over the United fans, even though he was regularly selected by David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho.
He however allowed his contract to run out at the end of last season but subsequently signed a new two-year deal that is not due to expire until 2020.
