Transfer News: Manchester United has been notified that only Premier League clubs can afford Victor Osimhen
Victor Osimhen has been one of the stand-out performers of Napoli in this campaign, having secured 17 goals and six assists in 30 matches across all competitions. His physical strength and strong shooting skills make him an excellent fit for the Premier League.
Manchester United have remained highly interested in Osimhen for a long time. They haven’t made any offer until now, but they are sold by the 23-year-old’s performances this campaign and want to bring him to Old Trafford in the following summer transfer window.
However, in order to secure the deal, Red Devils have to beat a handful of teams who are also keeping tabs on the Napoli star.
How can Victor Osimhen help Manchester United?
Manchester United have remained highly dependent on 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo for goals in this campaign. However, the dependency had not served the team well as they lacked to produce in crucial matches when the Portuguese star had an off day.
Even though Anthony Elanga’s emergence has helped the squad, there aren’t many quality players available who can take up significant responsibilities apart from Edinson Cavani and Ronaldo. The current scenario implies that the Red Devils require attacking reinforcements.
Victor Osimhen has been lethal in this campaign and showed mature performance. He could partner up with Ronaldo if Man United signs him in the coming summer window. Ronaldo has performed stupendously with a quality attacking partner like Wayne Rooney, and he could replicate the success with the Napoli star.

However, Osimhen’s price tag makes him an expensive target for any team. Man United already have spent a lot of money in recent transfer windows with varying degrees of success. Considering the results haven’t been as expected, whether they move ahead with another big-money signing is a big question.
