- Jose Mourinho reportedly wants to sign Marouane Fellaini this summer
- The former Manchester United man is currently playing his football in China
- The Tottenham had a good relationship with the midfielder at Old Trafford
- Fellaini’s contract with Shandong Luneng can be terminated early
Marouane Fellaini could shock the Premier League this summer as Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly planning a reunion with the former Manchester United man.
Fellaini had a good relationship with Mourinho during the manager’s two years at Old Trafford, with the midfielder being a regular starter in his first season before his next campaign was disrupted by injuries.
The Belgian currently plays his football in China and has a contract with Shandong Luneng until December. However, Football 24 claim his deal will end early, allowing him to join a new club in the summer.

The report states that Fellaini is high on Mourinho’s priority list for the next transfer window.
Fellaini would like to return to the Premier League with the midfielder in hopes of earning a recall for the Belgian national team.
The 33-year-old left United in January 2019 after playing just 31 minutes in Ole Gunnar Solskajer’s first nine games as caretaker boss.
Contracted by David Moyes in 2013, the midfielder has been a staple of his Everton roster for the past five years.

Fellaini often disagreed during his time at Old Trafford, but he managed to win two trophies with Mourinho – the Europa League and League Cup – and the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal.
The midfielder’s likelihood of joining the North London squad will depend on Mourinho still in charge at the end of the season.
The Spurs boss is under pressure following the collapse of his squad in the last sixteen of the Europa League and their faltering Premier League form since Christmas.
Whether Tottenham will qualify for European top football next season will influence whether Chairman Daniel Levy decides to stay with him for the 2021-2022 season.
But Mourinho is still planning ahead for next season with Fulham defender Joachim Andersen, another player on his list of potential goals, with the Portuguese eager to bolster his defense.
