However, with a new deal now in place, the 30-year-old midfielder is due to pen the dotted lines in the coming days.
Fellaini’s present contract at Manchester United was expected to run out in a few days’ time, after spending five seasons at the Premier League outfit.
Red Devils’ boss Jose Mourinho has employed the midfielder both as a starter in midfield as well as a forward option from the bench late in matches.
"I know where I’m going to play next year and that does not affect my performance at World Cup," Fellaini was quoted as saying on Tuesday.
"The contract has been signed and I’m going to announce it within a few days."
At the last count, the Belgium international has netted 20 goals in 156 games for Old Trafford dwellers.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Jose Mourinho is preparing a £60m bid for Brazil’s Willian during this summer.
The Red Devils’ Portuguese manager signed the 29-year-old Brazil international from Ukraine’s Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013, while at Stamford Bridge, but is now eager to take the highly-rated midfielder to Old Trafford.
