Manchester United leaders are advancing their interest in Napoli striker Victor Osimhen. The "Red Devils" sent their agents to see Osimhe in action, in the challenge against Milan in the Champions League. Although the Neapolitans were eliminated by the red and blacks, this has not affected the interest of the English in the talented Nigerian striker.
In fact, Osimhen managed to find the net, already registering a whopping 26 goals in 31 appearances this season. Napoli have yet to open talks with the player on a new contract, as it seems clear that the club has already accepted the fact that the Nigerian will soon leave Napoli. We remind you that the striker has 2 active years with the Italians according to his current contract. The player joined Napoli in 2020 from the French side Lille, for 70 million euros, a financial record for the Italian club.
United, on the other hand, sees Osimha as a serious alternative for the summer market. However, the "Red Devils" are also following the Harry Kane track. The captain of the English national team is expected to once again reject the renewal of the contract with Tottenham, and this could push the London club to sell the services of the player. Conversely, Kane could leave for nothing a year later, which would result in a fairly large economic loss for Tottenham.
Kane is a name that guarantees goals, as the striker has long proven himself in the Premier League. However, Kane is now 31 years old and entering the final years of his career. Osimhen, meanwhile, is only 24 years old and represents a safer, more stable and long-term option to support Manchester United's vision. This is also the reason why the "Red Devils" will try to the end to secure the services of the ace of Naples.
