The news is now almost public: Dries Mertens will leave Napoli at the end of this season and will not renew his contract, which expires in June 2022. The Belgian expects to be able to end his Napoli adventure in style, perhaps by lifting an important trophy, but regardless of the outcome at the end of the season, he will leave Teammates to move to another location.
It is still unclear what his future will be, given that there are different teams interested, but for now, the most likely hypothesis is that he will land in the United States where some MLS teams await him as today’s edition of Corriere writes. Sports:
“The free agent who in this period is very wooed in America: the future of Dries, in fact, could be in Mls. So, he wants to be American. Maybe Canadian: The fact is that MFL could become Mertens’ next championship. Operation concrete, possible
Mertens seems to have taken this hypothesis into account, but above all he has a new life experience and a move abroad. The United States or Canada, therefore, in the future, which, in any case, is likely not to be determined soon.
The Napoli winger is currently focusing on the sporting achievements of his team and his future father in March. There will be time to pack your bags, put a new stamp on your passport and say goodbye to his nickname “Siro”.
