Ekings News reports that Manchester United are looking to strengthen their attacking line ahead of Erik ten Hag’s first season, with Manchester United. They will apparently have to pay £85.5 million to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen this summer. Manchester United is expected to complement their attacking options in the transfer market. Edison Cavani will leave when his contract expires on June 30, while Cristiano Ronaldo’s future remains uncertain.
Ronaldo has one year left to sign a new contract with Manchester United, but he could find a new team after the team failed to qualify for next season’s Champions League. He will stay, but Manchester United must start planning for a new striker because Ronaldo is already old
Osimhen impresses the club. With his performances at Napoli this season, the Nigeria international has scored 17 goals in 30 appearances across all competitions, while Luciano Spalletti’s side is set to finish. Top three in Serie A, but Napoli have warned those interested in the striker. The group is thought to include Newcastle, with the 23-year-old not being as cheap as he thought.
According to Serie A news agency Mercato, Napoli stands firm in their £85.5m asking price for Osimhen. They know the Nigerian striker will one day leave the team soon. They see no reason to sell him for such a low price, with Osimhen still having three years at Napoli. Erik ten Hag wants to spend ahead of his debut season at Manchester United, but it remains to be seen whether he is willing to pay a large fee for the player. That high valuation at Napoli could cause Manchester United to turn their attention to other targets instead.
