The Sunday Mirror says Fellaini's £100,000-a-week wages if they want the Belgian flop to go out on loan to Napoli.
Rafa Benitez is interested in taking Fellaini away from Old Trafford for the season after new United boss Louis van Gaal made him surplus to requirements less than a year since his £27.5million arrival from Everton.
But the midfielder's salary is too rich for the Italians. And the Old Trafford giants will have to bite the bullet by continuing to pay him £50,000 a week, with Napoli making good the rest.
