According to Florian Plettenberg, the Red Devils are attempting to entice the Nigerian international to improve their strike force for next season.
“Manchester United is really interested in him. We’ve heard that he’s also ranked higher internally than Kolo Muani.”
This season, Osimhen has been in outstanding form with the Italian club. With 21 goals, he leads the Serie A goalscoring chart. Martinez of Inter Milan is in second place with 14 goals.
Meanwhile, in the UEFA Champions League, the former Lille striker has scored four goals in as many appearances under Spalletti.
Last midweek, the 24-year-old scored twice against Frankfurt to secure Napoli’s place in the final eight. Next month, they will meet the reigning Italian champions, AC Milan.
Osimhen scored twice in the 4-0 win over Torino last night, giving the Naples club a 19-point advantage at the top of the league.
According to a recent report in La Gazzetta Dello Sport, it will be difficult to keep the star center forward because he is a sought-after player in the market.
According to a reputable news source, if Manchester United makes an offer of more than £87.6 million (100 million euros), it may be accepted.
According to GdS, the African superstar gets 5 million euros (plus bonuses) per season, which equates to about £85,000 per week, and if suitors want to treble his earnings, Aurelio de Laurentiis will struggle to keep him.
Man United really needs a proven quality goalscorer to play in the No. 9 position. Should they pay more than £87.6 million to sign Victor Osimhen?
