Osimhen Nigeria center forward

Manchester United need a world class striker more than any other signing in the summer transfer window and once again, Victor Osimhen is in the focus.

According to a story covered by La Gazzetta Dello Sport today (press image below), Napoli are pressing to meet the Nigerian international in order to know his intention.

Transfer: Star left with 20 bags, will seal £50m Man United move with salary multiplied – Report

The African star was the top scorer in the Scudetto winning season and after the final game of the season, he stated:

“I don’t know what will happen next year, but I’m happy and motivated for what’s to come. I’m fine here, I love the city and the people. Let’s see what the president decides, I will accept everything that will be established”

However, the Italian media outlet claim the Naples based side are unsure about his future and want a decisive answer. They are scheduling a meeting with his agent next week to find out the player’s will.

GdS have reported that Man Utd are leading the race to agree the signing of Osimhen in the summer transfer window. He will only be allowed to leave if a fee of £103m is paid (120 million euros).

It is reported that Chelsea cannot offer Champions League football, whereas, Newcastle do not have the prestige and history of the Old Trafford club.

On the other hand, Bayern Munich and PSG are observing the developments from a distance and Real Madrid cannot be ruled out from the race after offloading Benzema.

Osimhen was deadly in front of goal last term and netted 31 goals in just 35 starts for Napoli (all competitions). Have your say – Should Man Utd bid £103m to secure his signing?
