Dries Mertens: Linked with Manchester United switch

Napoli star Dries Mertens has admitted that he could move to the Premier League in the future, before claiming Manchester City are beatable.

While training with the Belgian National Team, Mertens spoke to Sky Sport UK about his thoughts on English football.

The former PSV Eindhoven man conceded he was disappointed that Napoli didn’t get a result against Manchester City in either Champions League meeting.

Sergio Aguero scored the winner at the Stadio San Paolo last week as City secured qualification for the knockout stages, thrusting the Neapolitans into a crucial last two games.

“They’re not unstoppable because the game at home we played really good and we had chances to make it 3-2 and we didn’t score them and two seconds later they scored to make it 3-2,” Mertens said.

“That was a bummer but I think they have a very good team, it’s working, they’re doing really good but like every team, it’s going to stop one day.”

He also talked about a potential move to the Premier League in the near future, with speculation suggesting Manchester United were interested in the summer.

“I’m happy in Italy and I’m fine at Napoli, but maybe in the future I could come to England.”
