Man Utd lead race for €110m-rated Napoli hitman Victor Osimhen - but face stiff competition from PSG

Manchester United are being considered as the frontrunners to sign Napoli forward Victor Osimhen in the summer.

  • Man Utd favourites to sign Osimhen
  • Will face competition from PSG, Arsenal and Chelsea
  • Osimhen has a €110m (£94m) release clause

WHAT HAPPENED?

United are set to face stiff competition from Paris Saint-Germain, who reportedly want to make a statement in the summer transfer window. The Red Devils will also have to compete with fellow Premier League sides Arsenal and Chelsea to secure the signature of the Napoli star, according to the Independent.

THE BIGGER PICTURE

With Sir Jim Ratcliffe's INEOS group taking control at Old Trafford, the Premier League giants are eyeing a massive overhauling of their squad ahead of the 2024-25 season. PSG are also keen on adding firepower to their attack with Kylian Mbappe set to depart the club to join Real Madrid in the summer.

DID YOU KNOW?

The Nigeria international, who has netted 13 goals in 22 matches across all competitions for Napoli this season while also providing four assists, has a €110m (£94m/$119m) release clause in his existing contract.

WHAT NEXT FOR VICTOR OSIMHEN?

For now, the striker remains focused on the Italian side and will be next seen in action for them on Friday when they take on Torino in Serie A.
