Man United ‘burst back’ into race to sign elite striker tipped for Prem move

Premier League bound?

Manchester United have re-joined the chase to sign elite striker Victor Osimhen from Napoli over the summer transfer window.

United brought their Premier League campaign to a close with a 2-0 away victory against Brighton but pressure remains on Ten Hag after a tough campaign, but the Red Devils finished eighth and only managed to get European football after the stunning win over Man City.

The lack of goals has been a real issue for Ten Hag this season as the young Rasmus Hojlund is still coming to terms with playing for one of the biggest sides in the game in arguably the toughest League.

Osimhen and Napoli have endured an underwhelming season in 2023-24, however. The player has missed a host of games due to injury, illness and the Africa Cup of Nations, though he has still managed 17 goals in 31 appearances

He is leaving the Italian giants at some point in the summer window, with the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and PSG just three clubs that are reportedly interested in a deal for the £111 million rated striker.

But according to reports emerging from Italy, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Man Utd have burst back into the race for Osimhen.

The reports adds that Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial have already been confirmed as leaving. Ratcliffe could sell other players including Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood, Antony, Casemiro, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Christian Eriksen to help him match Osimhen’s £111m price tag

Manchester United spent all that money on signing Hoijlund when they could have signed Harry Kane for pretty much the same price – and he is banging in 30 goals this season at Bayern Munich.

Hoilund is a project that needs time to develop into the world class striker that many believe he could become – but he is not ready to lead that United attack.

But Osimhen could be a very expensive risk to take for the club
