Jose Mourinho admits he is concerned that Marouane Fellaini will leave Manchester United for nothing in the summer.

The Belgium midfielder rejected United's first contract offer in September as he seeks a new deal worth in the region of £170,000-a-week, and could walk away as a free agent at the end of the season.

Fellaini, who turned 30 earlier this week, has been heavily linked with PSG and Turkish club Besiktas, and Mourinho accepts that the contract situation is out of his control.

Asked if he is concerned that the player will leave in the summer, Mourinho said: 'Yes I am.'

Pressed on what he could do to turn the situation around, he added: 'Nothing. Leave the discussion to the player and the board. I am not involved in contracts, in deals.

'I respect both the players and the board. The player because he has the right to decide his future. He finishes his contract he has the right to decide his future.

'And I respect that because the decisions and discussions are under control, so I just wait wishing they will have an understanding. But it's out of my control.'
