The 30-year-old powerhouse has already rejected two contract approaches because he wants a significant increase to his already-extortionate £80,000-a-week wage and now he could join Premier League rivals Arsenal.

Arsenal transfer news: How likely is Unai Emery to land superstar signings?

Before United's campaign had ended, Jose Mourinho was confident that Fellaini was close to signing an extension. The 30-year-old is now on £80,000 per week.

Juillard told followers on social media that Fellaini will meet with Arsenal reps "at the beginning of the week".

According to The Times, Arsenal have scheduled talks with Fellaini for Wednesday.

It is believed new Arsenal boss Unai Emery had been keen to sign the Belgium worldwide when he was Paris Saint Germain manager and his representatives are due to meet with club officials this week.

With the squad in need of an overhaul but also with funds limited, Fellaini's availability on a free transfer is a strong motivator in Arsenal's interest in the former Everton man (as is the case with Juventus full-back Stephan Lichtsteiner).

Arsenal are in the market for a new central midfielder and Fellaini would represent a cheaper option than Sevilla's Steven N'Zonzi or Jean-Michael Seri, who has a €40 million (£35m) release clause in his contract with Nice.
