Manchester United Plotting a Move for Victor Osimhen

English Premier League giants Manchester United are currently interested in signing Nigerian International Victor Osimhen from Napoli. 

Victor Osimhen started his football career at the Ultimate Strikers Academy in Lagos. Osimhen represented Nigeria in the 2015 u-17 World Cup. 

His brilliant performances for the Nigerian team helped him to get a contract from the Bundesliga club VFL Wolfsburg. The Nigerian forward then made his senior team debut for the Wolfsburg side. After one season with the German side, Osimhen joined the Belgian team Charleroi on loan. 

The Nigerian forward then scored a lot of goals for Charleroi. At the end of his loan deal, his contract was converted into a permanent one. However soon after that, the forward joined Ligue 1 club Lille. Osimhen stayed one season in France. He netted eighteen goals in all competitions. Finally, at the start of the 2020-21 season, Napoli signed him after paying a club-record fee of €70 million.

Manchester United Plotting a Move for Victor Osimhen

Now according to a report from Manchester Evening News, English Premier League giants Manchester United have identified Victor Osimhen as their next no.9. 

Since the arrival of Erik ten Hag, Manchester United have done pretty well. The Red Devils have qualified from their Europa League group and are well within the race for the top four of the English Premier League. 

However, there are still quite a few areas in which the Red Devils will have to strengthen. One of them surely is the centre-forward position. United came into the season with Portuguese forward Cristiano Ronaldo as their main striker. 

As the season progressed, the five-time Ballon D’or winner failed to even make the starting eleven of Erik ten Hag. Things became worse in United’s Premier League match against Tottenham. Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly stormed out even before the full-time whistle. He also reportedly rejected to be subbed into the match.

After the Tottenham game, Erik ten Hag dropped Cristiano Ronaldo from their next EPL match against Chelsea. Things are currently not looking good between the two parties and the Portuguese superstar will mostly leave in the next January window. Then there is Anthony Martial who has missed the big part of the season due to injury. 

Meanwhile, Marcus Rashford has been the sole performer for Manchester United in the striker position. The English international however plays his best in the left wing. So as a result, United are looking at quite a few strikers they can bring in the next few transfer windows. 

How good is Osimhen?

Although the Italian side will surely not sell him this season, they might think to get some resell value if the Nigerian decides not to renew with the Italian side. This is a big opportunity for Manchester United who has the financial ability to bring the striker to Old Trafford.
