Another day, another report linking Victor Osimhen to Manchester United and today, we have an update coming from Spain.
According to a story covered by AS (news image provided below), Jorge Mendes is working to get Ronaldo out of Old Trafford and a move to Napoli is a possibility.
The Madrid based news source have mentioned that the Red Devils are interested in signing Osimhen from the Serie A side and can reach a complex agreement.
It is stated that the Naples based club are willing to agree a fee worth £85.4m (100 million euros) plus loan/transfer of Ronaldo to sell the Nigerian striker to Manchester United.
Manager, Luciano Spalletti expressed his wish to manage the Portuguese superstar and stated:
“Training Cristiano is something I would tell all my life”
AS claim that without the departure of Osimhen, the deal to lure Ronaldo would not be feasible for the Italian club. Apart from Man Utd, even Chelsea are interested in luring the former Lille forward.
United have already splashed £85.4m on Antony and with only a couple of days remaining in the summer transfer window, the Spanish news source claim the English side might not be able to spend the enormous amount again before Thursday’s deadline.
No United player has managed to score more than 20 goals in a single PL campaign since retired Robin van Persie achieved the feat 9 years ago. So, the Red Devils definitely need a striker. Will they be able to sign Osimhen? Only time will tell.
