Jose Mourinho believes there is still a good chance that Marouane Fellaini will stay at but admits the player's destiny is in his own hands.

Mourinho claimed that United were close to agreeing new contract terms with Fellaini after the Belgium midfielder came off the bench to head the winner against Arsenal last weekend.

But the 30-year-old has since told United that they made a mistake in not offering him a new deal when he asked for one last year, and the club could end up having to pay more than £40million for a replacement.
