Napoli and Mertens can not be understood as a new contract
Napoli’s leadership has made first attempts to renew the deal by Dir. Mertens, but talks between the two sides are extremely difficult, says calciomercato.com.
Over the last few seasons, the Belgian national has been re-qualified as a central striker, and has made 20 hits so far this season. Partenoids will attempt to remove the ransom clause in the player’s contract amounting to 28 million euros. and can only be activated by teams outside Italy.
A bargain in the talks is the player’s desire to get a higher pay while Napoli tends to extend his player’s contract to 2022, keeping the current parameters in Mertens’ contract.
