Dries Mertens has been superb for the Serie A outfit, as he scored 28 goals in all competitions last season.

The Belgian winger recently agreed a new deal with Napoli, but he continues to be linked with bigger clubs.

Marino has now revealed that the Red Devils are following the winger, who has a release clause of €28 million.

“Manchester United are following Mertens very closely," Marino told Tuttosport.

“He was an underestimated player until he played as a striker. Now that he is a ‘real No.9’ he is kept under the eye of big clubs, because the €28 million clause is a low price, even if he’s 30 years old.”

Mertens has enjoyed a fine start to the 2017-2018 season, having scored nine goals and assisted a further five in 11 matches across all competitions.
