Reports: Marouane Fellaini can join Napoli for £5.5million

Reports in Italy say Manchester Utd flop Marouane Fellaini is available to Serie A side Napoli on a £5.5million ‘loan’ deal.

As reported by Football Italia, the English language Italian football website, the Belgian midfielder can join Rafa Benitez’s side on a loan deal which would involve a fee and wages.

According to Il Sole 24 Ore, Napoli could get Fellaini for a total cost of €7m (£5.6m) for the 2014-15 campaign.


This would be split into paying around €3m for the loan and €4m in wages.


The buy-out fee would then be negotiated at the end of the season, when Rafa Benitez has seen how he fits into the squad.

United spent £27.5million on Fellaini last summer, David Moyes’ only major signing during his dismal spell at Old Trafford. The former Everton midfielder was a complete flop and looks to be out of Louis van Gaal’s plans this season, despite coming off the bench in Saturday’s 2-1 loss to Swansea.
