Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been dealing with a knee injury that has the club uncertain what is the root of the issue.

Jose Mourinho was hopeful Fellaini would be available for the derby with Manchester City but Fellaini was ruled out 24 hours prior to kickoff.

Fellaini suffered strained knee ligaments playing for Belgium against Bosnia back on October 7th. He missed 6 games, returning in November to play in 4 matches, but has not played since November 25th.

Fellaini has undergone further scans to get some more information on what ails him, but he has been unsuccessful in getting to the source of the problem.

United are still hopeful they will be able to convince Fellaini, who’s current deal expires at the end of the season, to sign a new contract

Fellaini reportedly rejected a new deal in September as he seeks a longer-term commitment offer.
