Victor Osimhen, a Nigerian international and Napoli star, has suddenly appeared as Manchester United’s top transfer target to replace the fading Cristiano Ronaldo.
Ronaldo has been out of form since the turn of the year, scoring only once. The Portuguese icon returned to the Theatre of Dreams from Juventus in the summer, but he has fallen short of expectations.
According to claims that the club has lined up a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, Manchester United appears to be ready for life without him.
The Red Devils are reportedly interested in signing Napoli’s Victor Osimhen to replace Ronaldo at Old Trafford. Despite missing nearly two months due to injury, the Nigerian international is having a strong season, scoring 11 goals in 22 games.
United have set their sights on Napoli ace Osimhen, according to Football Italia, citing Rai Sport.
United has started talking to the Italian club and the player’s agency regarding Osimhen’s transfer, according to the publication. The Manchester United club, on the other hand, is anticipated to spend close to €100 million to get the 22-year-old services.
