Manchester United is set for a surprise move for Super Eagles attacker, Victor Osimhen.
This claim was made by transfer market expert Antonio Giordano.
Giordano is convinced that Osimhen would not say no to ManUnited should they make a ‘surprise’ move for him before next season.
Osimhen currently plays for Napoli and has scored 11 Serie A goals and four more in the Europa League so far this season.
“Osimhen is followed by half the world, and it is true that Newcastle showed 100 million in January,” Giordano told Canale 8 via TuttoNapoli.
“Meanwhile, Arsenal never stopped following Osimhen and, surprisingly, Manchester United.
“In the personal imagination of a 23-year-old player, [Manchester] United is a temptation, and if the Red Devils reach certain figures, history teaches that certain operations must be done. At certain figures, it’s madness not to sell.”
The Napoli striker Victor Osimhen is excited about Manchester United interest.
Il Corriere dello Sport says United have emerged as leading contenders to sign Osimhen during the upcoming summer transfer window.
The 23-year-old Nigeria international has scored 15 goals in 25 matches for the Serie A side this season, while Osimhen is also thought to have attracted interest from Arsenal and Saudi-backed Newcastle in the Premier League alone.
However, the frontman is ready to reject those two clubs in favour of a move to Old Trafford.
Osimhen is understood to prefer United as his next destination.
