Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is presently in touch with Napoli striker Dries Mertens and they are believed to be having a serious discussion over the possibility of signing the £25m-rated player  this summer.

According to the Sun , the Portuguese manager was unhappy with the performances put on Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford in their unexpected 1-0 defeat to Brighton and Hove on Friday and he is set to let go of the duo.

The Sun also report that Mourinho is willing to bring Dries to Old Trafford for him to fill the void that could be created by one of the strikers in the summer.

Dries Mertens has scored 89 goals since he joined Maurizio Sarri’s side in 2013 and he is presently in one of his best forms after finding the back of the net in 21 occasions in all competitions this season.

Signing the Naples forward will surely be a round peg in a round hole for Mourinho’s team who has over-relied for Romelu Lukaku for goals throughout the season. The Belgian international would definitely be of help to his compatriot when it comes to scoring goals for the team.

Alexis Sanchez is another player with an impressive goalscoring ratio during his days at Arsenal and he seems to have rediscovered the form that made United paid so much on his signature during the winter transfer market.

With an in-form Sanchez, Lukaku and Mertens ; backed up by Pogba, flanked by overlapping Ashley Young or Alex Sandro (if he joins the Red Devils in the summer according to report), United will definitely be aiming for not just the League trophy but also the Champions League glory in the 2018-19 season.
