Interresting rumor this is, I personally dont know what to say about it.
Hamilton currently drives at McLaren, power by Merc engines. He sure knows the big bosses at Merc and has other connections there. There have been rumors surrounding Hamilton for a longer time, mainly to Red Bull first. We all know that isnt going to work since they'll stick to Webber and Vettel.
For Hamilton to make the step to Merc is a logical decision. Hamilton seems to want to step his game up and take a team to the top, just like Vettel does, Schumacher had done and alonso does. It is clear in that prospect that McLaren does not have the same intentions as Lewis does. Then Merc is a logical step, they have been hiring a lot and still need to pick the fruits from this, they need a driver who can take them to the next level and I believe both Rosberg as Schumacher are currently incapable of doing so.
McLaren so far didnt seem to take any specific interest in Lewis, not on his contract and not on his salary, then on track he is constantly the guy to get the crap of the weekend over himself, he is always the unlucky guy at McLaren. It isnt a surprise that Lewis would leave, that it would take this long is a surprise already imo.

you suggesting hamilton to merc and nico to mclaren?
With everyone going crazy about this great history that wouldnt sound stupid. Afterall after now a Senna in a williams-Renault, Lotus back in F1 what is better than having a Rosberg drive at McLaren?
