Fellaini contract is due to end this season and he has been linked with many club side like Paris Saint-Germain and Besiktas all season.
Manchester united boss confirmed after last weekend’s 2-1 win over Arsenal in Old Trafford that he still hoped Fellaini would sign a new United deal, although the midfielder has since revealed the club may have left it too late.
According to reports the Belgian midfielder is holding out for a two-year deal and an increase on his current reported £80,000-a-week wages in order to renew with the Red Devils, but Mourinho has backed the club's approach to talks.
“He let his contract run until the end,” ESPN quote Mourinho as saying at his news conference on Thursday. “You cannot say that it was the club. “If there were no offers, then we could say the club let it go until now. He had offers, And he had offers in a progressive way. “Of course, the offer he has now on the table is a better offer than he had six months ago or eight months ago.
“It is a process and he is using the fact that he is in the end of his contract to let it go. Is it a decision good or bad, but it is his decision and we have to respect that.”
