Fellaini, who joined the Red Devils from Everton way back in 2013, was scheduled to be out of contract this summer with United having waited so long to exercise the one year option they had on his contract.

Shanghai SIPG's new Brazilian signing Oscar believes the cash-rich Chinese Super League could soon rival the best football club competitions in Europe. Oscar joined a growing list of high profile footballers to move to China last month when he signed with Shanghai SIPG from London club Chelsea for a reported $74 million.

Asked whether he has come to a low quality league after playing in the English Premier League (EPL) from 2012 to 2016, the 25-year-old said here: "I don't think it is a step down. I think in China they are making a great project for me and all the good players that are coming to the league. I am pretty sure that in the future the Chinese league will be one of the best leagues in the world."
