Manchester United: Red Devils keen on Victor Osimhen

Manchester United: Red Devils keen on Victor Osimhen -Manchester United News

Manchester United are interested in a move for Napoli forward Victor Osimhen, according to Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg.

The Lowdown: Antony and Dubravka deals

The Red Devils look set to be rather busy in the final few days of the transfer market, with deals in place for Ajax winger Antony and Newcastle United goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

The Brazilian looks set to join for around £85m, while the Slovakian will make the move to Old Trafford on an initial loan deal with an option to sign permanently for £5m.

All going well, the pair will become United’s fifth and sixth summer additions, and it looks like a new centre-forward is also of interest.

The Latest: Osimhen interest

Plettenberg took to Twitter on Monday evening, stating that Osimhen is ‘definitely a potential top transfer target’ for United.

He said that the interest remains regardless of where Cristiano Ronaldo ends up, adding that no negotiations are ongoing at this stage.

The Verdict: Final piece of the jigsaw?

Osimhen, who was claimed to be ‘the most terrifying striker in Europe‘ by journalist and African football expert Saddick Adams, has just come off his best season in front of goal.

The Nigeria international netted 18 times in 2021/22 and has already scored twice in three games in the early weeks of the current campaign.

He is primarily a centre-forward, something that United currently lack, especially with Ronaldo’s future still up in the air, so the 23-year-old could be the perfect final addition.

However, Osimhen may come at a huge cost, as he is under contract until 2025 and currently holds a career-high £58.5m Transfermarkt valuation.
