Man Utd lead to agree signing of £77million star – Report

Osimhen Nigeria center forward

Manchester United suffered yet another humiliating defeat yesterday and they will not be taking part in the Champions League next season.

If West Ham United win their remaining fixtures, then the Red Devils will not finish in the top 6 and would even fail to qualify for the Europa League.

Transfer: From Spain – Man Utd told £59million would get signing done

Incoming manager, Erik ten Hag will have a massive rebuilding job and the Dutch manager must adequately reinforce the squad in the summer transfer window.

The strike force at Old Trafford must be improved. Veterans like Ronaldo and Cavani should be replaced by a quality forward who would serve the club in the years to come.

As per reports going on in the media, Man Utd lead to agree signing of Nigerian international and Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen.

According to La Repubblica, Newcastle are crazy about luring the 23-year-old star as well but for now, Man United are in pole-position to hire his services.

The famous Italian news source have mentioned that the former Lille player is going to cost around 90 million euros (£77million) in the summer transfer window.

Back in 2015, Osimhen won the U-17 FIFA World Cup with Nigeria and was the top scorer in the competition. Moreover, he was also a member of the squad that lifted the U-23 Africa Cup trophy.

As far as the current campaign is concerned, the 18-capped international has featured in 30 games in all competitions for Napoli, scored 17 goals and also provided 6 assists. The Naples-based club have already booked their place in the next season’s Champions League.

So, in my view, it will be surprising if Osimhen opts to move to Manchester United. Do you think Man Utd can sign the £77million-rated star without CL football?
