Manchester United still keen on signing Victor Osimhen —-Report


English Premier League (EPL) side, Manchester United are still keen on signing Super Eagles and Napoli FC striker Victor Osimhen, despite interest from other clubs.


Leading soccer analyst Malu Mpasinkatu revealed that Manchester United is supposedly still negotiating a deal to capture Osimhen as the competition to recruit him heats up among Europe’s best clubs.

Mpasinkatu, who shared the update while speaking on Radio Goal said United are ready to enter into a bidding war for the 25-year-old striker, who they view a better fit to lead their attack next season.

He said; “United will rival Chelsea for Osimhen this summer and both clubs are “on him” – a suggestion that they’re working on a deal to lure him to their respective sides.

“From the information I have, at the moment there is talk of [Marcus] Thuram at PSG instead of Mbappe.

“The Nigerian (Osimhen) has already played in France; his goal is the Premier League. Manchester United are on him as well as Chelsea. [Jonathan] David? He could be the right profile to replace Osimhen, he is young but has been playing in Europe for several years.

“He has different characteristics from Osimhen, but he is very strong. Lille are an expensive club, but it’s unlikely that the players they sell do badly.” Mpasinkatu noted.

Recall that the gangling Super Eagles forward scored his 13th goal in 20 Serie A games this season as Napoli FC and Frosinone drew 2-2 at home in a league clash.
