Manchester United, the English Premier League heavyweights, are set to offer Nigeria international Victor Osimhen a weekly deal worth roughly N60.6 million.
Osimhen has been connected with many prominent Premier League clubs, according to several transfer reports.
Following his successful season with Napoli in the Italian Serie A, Liverpool, Arsenal, Newcastle United, and Manchester United are all interested in signing him.
The striker joined Napoli in the summer of 2020 for €80m with ads-on and has a contract with the Naple-based club until 2025.
The 23-year-old has since become a key figure at the club and is currently the club’s leading scorer with 18 goals in 31 appearances so far this season.
Though reluctant, Napoli are open to his sale this summer, but will reportedly seek a whopping £85m (€100m) for his services.
The Parthenopeans rejected Manchester United’s first offer for Osimhen but now the Red Devils are looking to offer Anthony Martial in a swap deal as they bid to rebuild the team following another poor season.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, United are reportedly hopeful of securing his signing. With talks already underway.
The website claims Osimhen could agree a five-year deal worth £146,000 a week. That is more than double the money he currently earns at Napoli.
Osimhen’s journey to becoming one of Europe’s most sought after players, has been denial and rejection but the lad never gave up.
The young striker, endured a testing time at his first European club Wolfsburg, which he joined following his eye-catching performances at the 2015 U-17 World Cup in Chile.
The forward starred at the tournament, winning the Golden Boot and Silver Ball awards after helping Nigeria clinch the title.
