Manchester United alert to Dries Mertens' contractual situation

  Manchester United alert to Dries Mertens' contractual situation Manchester United have reportedly been put on red alert, with Napoli aiming to tie Dries Mertens down to an extended contract at the Stadio San Paolo. According to claims from Calciomercato, the Serie A side are desperate to tie their star attacker down to a new and improved contract at Napoli, with the club’s president making the renewal his top priority for the summer. United are stated to be an interested party in Mertens, with his previous negotiations with Napoli over a new deal reaching an impasse. The Belgian international has gone from strength to strength under Maurizio Sarri and although it’s understood that he is happy in Naples, a move to the Premier League may yet be an attractive proposition. Mertens is likely to be a key player for his native Belgium in this summer’s World Cup and will be keen to have his contractual situation at Napoli resolved before the tournament in Russia begins.

CRYSTAL PALACE are preparing a renewed bid for Belgium international Leander Dendoncker . Dendoncker has previously attracted interest from Manchester United and Chelsea, while Everton and West Ham have battled Palace for his signature in recent months.

Crystal Palace are set to battle with Serie A side Fiorentina for the signing of  Leander Dendoncker this summer, according to Calciomercato.

Palace attempted to buy the player in January without luck, while West Ham were also rumoured with a move for the player.

Anderlecht have previously admitted that they would accept an offer if they receive a proposal entailing an appropriate fee from potential suitors, with Dendoncker one of the club’s most valuable assets.

Florentina are now set to join the battle for the player, with Palace remaining the firm favourites to get a deal over the line.

Dortmund and Chelsea both want Napoli boss Sarri

  Dortmund and Chelsea both want Napoli boss Sarri With Antonio Conte expected to leave Stamford Bridge this summer, the club will be looking for a new boss. Roman Abramovich wants to acts quickly this summer so the new man can bring in the transfers required. Napoli boss Maurizio is rumoured to be the man that Chelsea want to replace Antonio Conte at the helm. The 59-year-old Sarri seems to be the first choice for Russian owner Roman Abramovich who wants to bring him in after Conte leaves his post. It is reported that Sarri wants to test himself out of the Serie A. Chelsea may have some competition for the Napoli man with Borussia Dortmund also being interested in the Italian. Dortmund are looking to get in one of Europe’s best coaches to get them competing with Bayern Munich in the Bundesliga and with the giants of Europe in the Champions League. For either Chelsea or Dortmund to get Sarri away from Napoli they would have to contend with the €8m payout clause he has in his contract at the club. It is reported that Sarri is interested in the prospect of the Dortmund job but he wants to have a conversation with Napoli chairman De Laurentiis, before looking elsewhere.

Crystal Palace are interested in signing Anderlecht midfielder Leander Dendoncker in the summer, according to reports. And if they do manage to avoid getting dragged back into the bottom three and manage to get a deal done for Dendoncker , it would arguably be a fantastic statement from the

Palace will undoubtedly be hoping that the allure of Premier League football along with financial power will dissuade Dendoncker from the prospect of playing for Fiorentina.

The London club are safe in the top flight now and can now prepare themselves ahead of next season, with Dendoncker likely to be a target once again.

Fiorentina will not need to sell Federico Chiesa this summer .
Fiorentina general manager Pantaleo Corvino has told Chelsea, Tottenham and AC Milan that Federico Chiesa will not leave the club this summer. Speaking to Sky Sports Italia, as reported by Calcio Mercato, the Fiorentina chief confirmed that the club do not need to sell the player. Chiesa is in-demand and there had been some concerns that La Viola would need to sell this summer because of financial implications, but Corvino says that is not the case. “Chiesa? We are in a position where we can resist any temptation to sell.” The 20-year-old is one of the hottest prospects in Italian football and has netted six times for Fiorentina this season. Chiesa, son of former Italian international Enrico Chiesa has attracted plenty of Premier League interest in the past, while AC Milan are also interested in the player. Milan could face the prospect of losing Suso this summer and Chiesa could be seen as a replacement for the Spaniard.
