Manchester United: Conor Clancy makes Victor Osimhen transfer fee claim

Manchester United: Conor Clancy makes Victor Osimhen transfer fee claim -Manchester United News

Journalist Conor Clancy has made a transfer claim involving Manchester United and their pursuit of Napoli forward Victor Osimhen. 

The lowdown: United interested in Osimhen

After Erik ten Hag officially took over the helm as the club’s new manager, a major rebuild of the squad is expected over the course of the summer.

It has recently been reported that the Red Devils are desperate to bring the highly-rated 23-year-old Nigeria striker to Old Trafford as the Dutchman attempts to kickstart the transfer window with fresh faces coming in.

Looking at the possibility of making Osimhen part of the new era in Manchester, one journalist has suggested that such a move isn’t out of the question, but with one significant obstacle to overcome…

The latest: Osimhen could cost £100m+

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Clancy claimed that the Glazers will have to exceed United’s club-record transfer expenditure in order to sign the 18-cap Nigeria predator.

He said of Osimhen: “I think he’s the next £100million sale from Serie A, whether it’s this summer or next summer. He’s not going to go cheap. Napoli signed him for £70million and that was very much with a view to selling him for more than that.

“A £10million profit on a player like Osimhen is not enough. He’s a superstar.”

The verdict: At all costs

A nine-digit transfer fee is eye-watering, but Osimhen boasts an outstanding 66 goals in 152 senior outings in what has been a rapidly rising career trajectory to date, and he would certainly offer a longer-term option than United’s current primary goal-getter Cristiano Ronaldo.

During the 2021/22 campaign, the powerful Nigerian centre-forward scored 18 times and provided another six assists in 32 appearances across all competitions, boasting an impressive 7.13 Sofascore rating whilst taking 3.4 shots per Serie A game in the process.

As Ten Hag attempts to oversee a revamp of the squad at Old Trafford, Anthony Martial appears a likely candidate to leave the club altogether, so Osimhen would seem the ideal man to become an instant replacement for the out-of-favour Frenchman, given his enviable track record.
