Marouane Fellaini is Napoli’s dream target for the midfield. They are waiting impatiently for the result of the meeting between the Belgian international and United’s executives, which will happen after the US tour. Napoli hope to be able to complete the operation, also considering that the player is open to moving to Napoli. The wages are an obstacle: Napoli don’t want to pay more than €2M, also because they would have to pay a fee for the loan. The situation is evolving, Napoli are working also on the alternatives, like Liverpool's Lucas Leiva, whose loan could be an option, or Manchester City's Javi Garcia. But Fellaini is Napoli’s top choice. Napoli are working to give Benitez a midfielder.
