Napoli To Manchester United: Pay £140m, Get Osimhen

Italy’s football giants, Napoli has categorically told English Premier League side, Manchester United, to pay £140m to sign  Super Eagles of Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen this summer after agreeing on a deal to sign his Napoli teammate Kim Min-jae,The Mirror reports. 

Osimhen has emerged as a prime target for Manchester United this summer following his impressive display for the Serie A champions this season and he heads the club’s striking shortlist.

The Mirror added that the Devils had their scouts in attendance for Napoli’s Champions League clash against Milan last month and have identified the Nigerian as the man to lead their attack next season.

Nigerian international Osimhen was in scintillating form this season for Napoli  as he emerged on the Italian Serie A scorers chart with 23 goals, three more than Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, who is in second position with 20 goals.

The Super Eagles forward has three years left in his contract at the Stadio Amando Maradona, but following a decent campaign so far, a number of European clubs have been linked with securing his services in the summer, with United one of the favourites to land the striker.

His Napoli teammate Kim has already decided to join United despite only moving to Naples last year.

After agreeing to pay the £43m release clause inserted in the South Korean’s contract, the Devils are now looking forward to signing Osimhen, who guided Napoli to their first Scudetto win in 33 years.
