Manchester United linked with Mertens move

Manchester United are considering a bid for Napoli forward Dries Mertens, according to the Metro.

The Belgium international has been continuously linked with a move to a European heavyweight following a splendid start to the campaign which has seen him score nine goals in all competitions, including seven in seven league appearances.

Both United and Premier League champions Chelsea registered interest in the thirty year old during the summer though no bids were forthcoming, however that could change when the transfer window reopens now details of the Belgium international’s release clause have been released.

£25m will be enough to secure the services of the former PSV and Utrecht man, who is in line to win his sixtieth international cap tomorrow evening as Roberto Martinez’s side take on Bosnia and Herzegovina in the penultimate game of the World Cup qualifying campaign.

Belgium have already qualified for next summer’s tournament in Russia and are currently priced at 16/1 to win the trophy.
