According to reports in Italy, the Belgian midfielder will end nightmare 11-month stay at Old Trafford with transfer to the Serie A side.

Marouane Fellaini's departure from Manchester United appears to have moved a step closer after he reportedly met with officials from Italian side Napoli.

Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport claim the player and his agent met with representatives of the Serie A side in Brussels recently to discuss a potential move.

They claim the Belgian midfielder has agreed to the transfer with the only issue now being the size of the fee United want for the player they bought for £27.5million last summer.

United are apparently demanding a fee in the region of £15m.
