The Red Devils are one of the biggest clubs in the world and could make a big-money move for one of Nigeria’s most exciting footballers in the summer
Transfer market expert Antonio Giordano is convinced that Victor Osimhen would not say no to Manchester United should they make a ‘surprise’ move for the Napoli ace before next season.
Osimhen is reportedly wanted by half of Europe’s richest clubs following his positive development at Napoli, where he has scored 11 Serie A goals and four more in the Europa League. Last year in his maiden campaign in Italy, the 23-year-old managed only ten league goals while making no impact on the continent.
Tottenham, Arsenal, and Real Madrid have been linked to the Napoli forward recently, with Newcastle reportedly offering 100 million euros for the Nigerian in January.
The new English moneybags could return for Osimhen in the summer with an improved bid, but Antonio Giordano believes the Super Eagles star will refuse to head to St James’ Park.
Giordano is surprised, though, that Premier League giants Manchester United are also keeping a tab on Osimhen, and the transfer guru expects the youngster to find the Red Devils’ offer, if it arrives, to be too tempting to refuse.
“Osimhen is followed by half the world, and it is true that Newcastle showed 100 million in January,” Giordano told Canale 8 via TuttoNapoli.
“But in my opinion, if the English club returns, the Nigerian will not go. But then it is also necessary to check what Newcastle will do, what team they will do, what coach I will take on, and what contractual offer they will present.
“Meanwhile, Arsenal never stopped following Osimhen and, surprisingly, Manchester United.
“In the personal imagination of a 23-year-old player, United is a temptation, and if the Red Devils reach certain figures, history teaches that certain operations must be done. At certain figures, it is madness not to sell.”
Osimhen has four goals in his last two matches for Napoli.
