Manchester United Open Talks With Osimhen

Manchester United have opened talks for the summer signing of Lille’s highly-rated Nigeria international and Lille forward, Victor Osimhen, reports claim.

The transfer race actually appeared to be all but over earlier this week as reports claimed Napoli were closing in on signing Osimhen in a deal worth more than €50million.

However, United have joined the race at the eleventh hour as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer bids to bring a new forward to Old Trafford possibly as a replacement for Osimhen’s Super Eagles teammate, Odion Ighalo, whose contract expires in January.

According to CalcioNapoli24, the Red Devils made contact over signing Osimhen by calling his agent ‘hours ago’ to be updated on his current situation apropos the proposed move to Napoli.
