Manchester United make contact with one of Europe’s best forwards – Report

Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are desperate for their side to bring in a number of world-class players, as they’ll look to challenge for the Premier League title next season. 

The Red Devils have been rather inconsistent in recent times as they suffered defeat at the hands of Brighton last time out, with many of our local Mancunians beginning to fear the worst. Although, it looks as if Jose Mourinho is already looking to the summer transfer window, as according to Sun Sport, Manchester United are eyeing a summer move for Dries Mertens.

It’s understood that Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is looking to meet Napoli star Dries Mertens’ £25 million release clause.

Although, the small release clause is not the only thing that attracted the attention of the Portuguese manager, as he likes his versatility and is believed to have contacted the 30-year-old’s entourage to enquire over his availability.

The Belgian has been one of the standout performers in the Serie A so far this season and has had a huge say in Napoli’s push for the title, with 17 goals and six assists to his name.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Dries Mertens has been prolific in the current campaign as one of the most dangerous attackers in world football, with many of our local residents wanting to see him at Old Trafford in the summer. And, with Anthony Martial’s future currently surrounded with doubt, Jose Mourinho may look to bring Mertens in as his replacement.
