Osimhen has had a fantastic season at Napoli, scoring 26 goals in all competitions.
His prolific play has piqued the interest of Europe’s elite clubs, including Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, and Bayern Munich.
The 24-year-old’s summer transfer to Old Trafford has been highly rumored. Erik Ten Hag was forced to call it quits when PSG emerged as the frontrunner for his signing.
According to Sky Sports analyst Florian Plettenberg, Osimhen may reject the Ligue 1 club because talks with Manchester United have become more “concrete.”
Man United is preparing for an internal battle.
Despite the French club’s efforts to lure Osimhen to the Stade de France, Plettenberg stated that ‘PSG is not the hottest choice’ at this time.
However, Premier League clubs Chelsea and Manchester United are said to be more ‘concrete’. In addition, he is on Bayern Munich’s radar. Although the German behemoths have been put off by his high price.
Napoli is still asking for more than €150 million (£132 million) for the Nigerian, who said he ‘dreamed’ of playing in the Premier League.
Plettenberg went on to say that United are now bracing themselves for an ‘internal race’ between Osimhen and Eintracht Frankfurt forward Randal Kolo Muani, who is rumored to be worth £105 million.
According to Sky Germany, United has begun conversations with the player about a possible transfer. While it is believed that the Frenchman is more important than Osimhen.
‘United pushes without end,’ says the magazine. ‘They’ve got him. This is the club that is now providing the most gas, even more than Bayern Munich. Kolo Muani is ranked higher than Victor Osimhen at United.’
