Man United to pay €120m for Europe’s top striker
Victor Osimhen is still a big target for Manchester United. The English side want him to fill the spot left by Cristiano Ronaldo and would be prepared to pay the Napoli player’s €120 million release clause next summer.
After they wanted to sign him in the last transfer window, Manchester United will try again for Vitor Osmihen in summer.
That is what the ‘Daily Mail’ claim, who have reported that the Old Trafford side have already started to get things in place ahead of the summer, when they will be ready to offer the €120 million to activate the Napoli player’s release clause, whose contract at the Italian side goes until June 2025.
The young 24 year old striker became one of the most sought-after players in January. United as well as PSG, among others, tried to sign the ex-Lille man, but it was all in vain as he ended up staying in Naples.
Since Cristiano Ronaldo left, the English side have been looking for a quality goalscorer able to lead his side to victory and they have found the ideal man for this role in Osimhen.
