There were rumours of a potential move to Manchester in the summer but nothing materialised. However, Erik ten Hag’s team is crying out for a striker of Osimhen’s skillset.
United do not have an out-and-out striker on their books currently and it is believed this will be a priority area in the next transfer window if not next summer.
A 37-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo, who is in the final year of his contract, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, both who like to play out wide, have filled in the centre-forward position but none of them have the power, pace, the finish and positional awareness of the Nigerian.
At 23, age is also on his side and United are among a few teams that could afford to pay the over €100 million that Napoli would be demanding if he was to leave.
