It is believed that the Nigerian superstar will be Manchester United’s primary focus during the impending transfer window for the summer.
The aim is for Manchester United to bolster the central striker position with a blockbuster contract during the summer of next year. As a result of the ғᴀᴄᴛ that Anthony Martial suffers from recurring injuries and Wout Weghorst does not have an exceptional goal-scoring ability, Red Devils head coach Erik Ten Hag desires for the team’s attack to be headed by a player with a higher level of ‘leader’ potential.
In recent times, not only has the name of Harry Kane been extensively linked with Manchester United, but also the name of Victor Osimhen, who is a brilliant player currently employed by Napoli. With 19 goals scored in the Italian Serie A this season, it is clear to recognize that the Nigerian star is one of the most essential ғᴀᴄᴛors contributing to Napoli’s success in coming so close to winning the league title. As a result, there is no valid reason for the Naples club to give Osimhen an easy time of saying goodbye.
According to Sportsmole, which cited sources from Calciomercato, Napoli planned to make 150 million euros from the sale of Osimhen, but Manchester United had no intention of paying this amount. Instead, the source verified that the Red Devils set a price of one hundred million euros for the striker, who is 23 years old. Taking into account the current circumstances, Osimhen’s contract is still in effect until 2025, so it is quite unlikely that Napoli will agree to a reduction in the required transfer cost.
