Two of Napoli’s hottest stars this season Dries Mertens and Lorenzo Insigne could very well be heading towards the exit door at the end of the season.
Partenopei fans were put on red alert by their own manager Maurizio Sarri after the weekend’s 3-2 win over Empoli when Napoli boss suggested that the club’s two biggest stars are set to leave the club come the end of the campaign.
“There is not much a manager can do if a player and his agent have different ideas over their future. The club most solve these situations, the quicker they will be the fewer problems we’ll have.”, Sarri was quoted in his post-match interview.
Dries Mertens has been in red-hot form this season and is said to have met with Manchester United representatives on a couple of occasions during the last few months.
The Belgian has so far scored 20 goals in 26 Serie A appearances, scoring five of those in his last four appearances for Partenopei.
Lorenzo Insigne has been offered a new deal by Napoli in efforts to tie the player beyond 2019, but the Italian forward has put the contract talks on hold with Liverpool being only one of the clubs keen to sign him in the summer.
The 25-year-old forward has bagged 12 goals in 26 Serie A games for Napoli this season.
