Fellaini has been ruled out of Sunday's Premier League match against Sunderland due to an ankle injury he suffered in training Monday.

Fellaini wasn't expected to be a big fantasy contributor this season under new manager Louis van Gaal, and he was heavily linked to a move, likely a loan, to Serie A side Napoli before the recent injury. He now may be stuck at Old Trafford until January, if he's fit then.

Fellaini injured his ankle during training Monday, and he is considered a serious doubt to face Sunderland on Saturday, The Guardian reports.

Fellaini dealt with two separate ankle injuries during his time with Everton, so United will certainly be cautious with him. Unfortunately, they have been desperately trying to ship him off to Serie A side Napoli, and a significant ankle injury will surely put a damper on any potential deal.

Fellaini will have his chat with Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal to learn his future prospects with the club as Napoli continue to pursue a loan deal for the midfielder, reports the Daily Mail.

Van Gaal has said that he would tell each player face-to-face whether or not they would figure into his plans for the squad, and Fellaini has consistently been a player considered on the outside. Napoli rumors have been around much of the summer, and could be a likely option for the Belgian.

Manchester United and Napoli have begun conversations about a potential transfer of Fellaini to Italy, reports the Daily Mail.

Fellaini joined United last season, but never made an impact on the side. He is rumored to not be part of manager Louis van Gaal's future plans for the club, and may find himself moving to Italy as a result.

Fellaini is considered an injury doubt for Belgium's Round of 16 match at the World Cup against the United States on Tuesday due to a groin injury, Manchester United's official web site reports.

Fellaini, who scored in Belgium's win over Algeria in the group stage, does not appear to be in serious danger of missing the match, although countryman Vincent Kompany could very well miss out.

Fellaini came on for Mousa Dembele in the 65th minute and then scored off a header in the 70th minute of Belgium's 2-1 win over Algeria in their opening match of the World Cup on Tuesday.

Fellaini's goal equalized the match for Belgium, who went down 0-1 in the 24th minute thanks to a penalty kick from Sofiane Feghouli. Fellaini is coming off a miserable season at Manchester United, as evidenced by the fact that he scored more goals Tuesday than in 19 Premier League matches this year.

Fellaini, who is struggling with a calf injury, is on track to play Sunday against Everton, the Telegraph reports.

Fellaini has been quite a disappointment for United after coming over in an 27.5 million deal last summer from Everton. He has featured in 20 matches this season, but has yet to find the back of the net after doing so 11 times in Premier League play last season.

Fellaini claimed that the elbow he threw in the Manchester derby that earned him a yellow card was not intentional and was only an effort to protect possession of the ball, reports Sky Sports.

Fellaini's clash with Pablo Zabaleta on Tuesday was criticized heavily following the match, with many pundits claiming the Belgian was lucky to escape with only a yellow card. Fellaini said he moved to protect the ball and Zabaleta ran into his forearm.
