Fellaini admits Chelsea interest

by Michelle Fortune , 25 February 2013

Marouane Fellaini would be interested in a move to Chelsea but will not push for a move away from Everton.

Fellaini's brilliant form for Everton has seen him linked with a move away to Chelsea but they have yet to table a bid for the 25-year-old midfielder.

With three years remaining on his contract at Goodison Park, Fellaini is adamant he will not try to force a move, but he has admitted his desire to play Champions League football.

"Am I interested in Chelsea? It's normal, right? I've never played in the Champions League," Fellaini is quoted as saying in the Daily Mirror.

"I'm happy here, I know everyone, I get along with my team-mates. It's my home. On the other hand, I also want to take the next step. Fate will decide.

"Everton paid £20 million and do not want to sell me for nothing. If a big club wants me, they will have to pay the price."

Fellaini has been one of Everton's standout players this term with 11 goals in 24 matches.
