Fellaini has been mentioned as one of the players Louis van Gaal might be looking to move on this summer as he begins to reshape his squad after taking charge at Old Trafford.

The Belgian star endured a disappointing campaign at Old Trafford after former Everton boss David Moyes sought to bring him along from Goodison Park and now there have been suggestions that he could be in line to move on just 12 months after arriving.

Following talks of both a loan move and a permanent deal, Benitez sought to give nothing away when it came to the deal.

“He’s not one of our players, his future does not depend on us, but on Manchester United,” Benitez said.

“I think about working with the players I have.”

Napoli have also been linked with a move for Barcelona star Javier Mascherano, who the Spaniard had under his charge at Liverpool.

However, Benitez virtually ruled out the possibility of the Argentine warrior linking up with the San Paolo outfit.

“This (possibility) is closed. I spoke with Javier and his agent but Luis Enrique has great respect for him and I understood that it was not possible to take him.”
