Manchester United have been linked with Nigerian international and Napoli star, Victor Osimhen, for some time and the latest update is intriguing.
According to Corriere dello Sport’s Antonio Giordano, Osimhen would be tempted to sign for Man Utd and if the PL side come up with a huge offer, it must be accepted.
The Italian journalist stated (via Tutto Napoli):
“Osimhen is followed by half the world and it is true that Newcastle showed 100 million in January, but in my opinion, if the English club returns, the Nigerian will not go,”
“Meanwhile, Arsenal never stopped following him and, surprisingly, Manchester United. In the personal imagination of a 23-year-old player, United are a temptation and if the Red Devils reach certain figures, history teaches us those certain operations must be done.“
Last month, renowned media outlet, La Gazzetta Dello Sport, revealed that the the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium outfit will only sell the center forward for £83million (100 million euros).
In the current campaign, Osimhen has so far started 17 games in the Serie A and directly contributed in 14 goals (11 goals and 3 assists).
On the other hand, in the Europa League, he scored 4 goals and provided 1 assist in 5 appearances.
The Old Trafford outfit need a top quality striker to eventually replace Cavani and Ronaldo at the club. Do you think Victor Osimhen is good enough to improve the Man Utd’s strike-force?
