As per Corriere dello Sport (press image provided below), the African star showed why Man Utd are “ready to” pay £130million (150 million euros) to sign him.

Osimhen is the leading goal scorer in the Italian league with 25 goals and without him, Napoli would not have managed to end the title drought.

In all competitions, the 24-year-old center forward has so far started 34 games and directly contributed in 35 goals (30 goals and 5 assists).

The Rome based news source claim the former Lille star is a menacing presence in the attack and his top performances have risen the market value to £130million.

CdS state that Man Utd are “collecting from their finances” an amount of £130million to “invest” on the signing of Victor Osimhen.

This term, Marcus Rashford has been United’s top scorer with 30 goals under Erik ten Hag but the England international has mainly featured on the left wing.

Martial is Man Utd’s top scoring center forward with just 9 goals. The Frenchman is just not good enough and Ten Hag must sign a proven quality finisher to strengthen the strike-force.

The Red Devils have not replaced Cristiano Ronaldo as yet and Osimhen, who is one of the best strikers in the world, would be a worthy replacement. What do you think?
