Transfer speculation, this Friday morning, has Manchester United linked with a winger.

With Jose Mourinho having insisted that, come the summer, he will be adding some class and depth to the squad, it`s natural that the media will be providing us with numerous possible recruits between now and the summer transfer window closing.

Today, according to the Express, Manchester United are keen on the Belgian winger Dries Mertens.

The 29-year-old is currently on the books of the Serie A side Napoli, but our referenced source is reporting that, according to the Italian newspaper Il Mattino, Mertens spent two hours in the lobby of a hotel in Italy talking to representatives of Manchester United.

The player`s current contract expires in 2018 and it would appear he is stalling over a new deal to study what other options are available to him.
