Italian agent Alessandro Moggi admits Napoli ‘must keep an eye’ on their finances in the summer but would be able to replace Victor Osimhen if he joins Manchester United or Real Madrid.

The Nigeria international has been linked with a move to Old Trafford or the Bernabeu in the summer.

“It remains to be seen if Napoli will sell Osimhen. Surely they have already proved to be able to replace big players they sold in the past,” Moggi, the son of former Juventus director Luciano, added.

“It’s a complicated situation, look at how it ended up with Lorenzo Insigne,” continued Moggi.

“There is always the risk of receiving big offers and it appears clear to me that Napoli must keep an eye on their finances.”
