Dries Mertens to Man Utd ?


Apparently, negotiations on telephone have been taking between Manchester United and Napoli player Dries Mertens.

The player’s deal expires in 2018, and the Belgian is not happy with the new deal Napoli offer him, doubling his wage worth €3m per season – double what he earns at the moment.

Mediaset reports that Mertens, 29, is “80-90 per cent likely to leave” to leave the Light Blues at the end of the season.

At Old Trafford he is expected to take his natural role on the left flank, as Jose Mourinho already prepares to bolster up the squad with fresh players for the upcoming campaing.
