Manchester United plan player-plus-cash offer for Victor Osimhen

Manchester United are reportedly interested in signing Napoli striker Victor Osimhen, with the club considering a player-plus-cash deal to secure the 25-year-old’s services.

According to CalcioNapoli24, the Red Devils have proposed a deal involving cash and United striker Rasmus Hojlund to tempt Napoli into parting with their star forward.

Osimhen has been linked with several top clubs, including Chelsea, Arsenal, and Paris Saint-Germain, but Manchester United are believed to be firmly in the race to sign the prolific Nigerian.

Rasmus Hojlund, who joined United last season and impressed during his debut campaign in England, could be included in the deal. It would be a surprising move, given Hojlund’s potential and promising future at the club. The Danish international has shown significant talent and could become a crucial player for Manchester United.

Napoli are reportedly willing to sell Osimhen this summer despite his status as the team’s top scorer over the past two seasons, including their Scudetto-winning 2022/23 campaign. Having established himself in Serie A, Osimhen is believed to be interested in testing himself in another top league, with the Premier League being a likely destination.

After signing a contract extension with Napoli, Osimhen’s release clause was set between €120 million and €130 million, but this high valuation has deterred potential suitors.

As a result, Napoli have lowered their asking price to €100 million. While Napoli have received interest from clubs like Chelsea, United, and PSG, no official offers have been made according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. Notably, Napoli turned down an offer exceeding €200 million from a Saudi Arabian team last summer.

Osimhen was acquired from Lille in 2020 for around €75 million and has since emerged as one of the most exciting strikers in world football. His potential move to Manchester United would be a significant coup for the club as they look to bolster their attacking options.
