‘Man United consider €100m Osimhen to replace Cristiano Ronaldo’

According to Rai Sport, Napoli star Victor Osimhen is Manchester United’s main target to replace Cristiano Ronaldo next season, but Napoli want at least €100m for their striker.

The Nigeria international has scored 11 goals in 22 appearances this term and missed almost two months of action due to a cheekbone injury. He’s scored two goals in six appearances since his return to action in January.

According to Rai Sport journalist Ciro Venerato, the 22-year-old is Manchester United’s primary target to potentially Cristiano Ronaldo in 2022-23. The Portuguese striker returned to Old Trafford from Juventus in the summer in a €15m deal plus €8m add-ons.

According to the report, United have already made preliminary contact with Napoli and the player’s agent, but the Partenopei value Osimhen at €100m.

In case Napoli sell the Nigeria international in the summer, Sassuolo‘s Gianluca Scamacca would become their main target in attack. The Italy international has also attracted interest from Inter and Milan.

    Knowing ADL, he’d probably sell him. It would be a bad deal for Osimhen on a personal level though, he sustained so many injuries in the still relatively tame serie a, defenders in the pl are all 6’4” and 200lb, he’d have it hard agains them. Hell, even Lukaku struggles against the very physical defence in england.

    In England of the big five countries, It has the less fouls and less physical.It’s more open. They go to premiership so they don’t get fouled and hurt like the MLS..there’s not a league more physical then the Italy and German league. Ask Tammy Abraham, Salah and Zlatan.

  4. FORZA Juve

    Ronaldo will go to conquer France with Zidane in PSG.its too boring for Ronaldo in this team and without champions league he is not interested

  5. DB Milan

    100 million seems steep to replace Ronaldo considering he could be replaced by a cardboard cutout of himself in most games.

    @Totti

    Mate, just because they have less official fouls doesn’t mean they are less physical, it means reffs give players more leeway in tackles, areals etc, doing less to protect those who are on the receiving end.
