With Erik ten Hag’s arrival at Manchester United just around the corner, the transfer rumours are ramping up when it comes to the Old Trafford side.
A big revamp is expected in the summer, with a new striker expected to arrive in the coming months, and Victor Osimhen is the name pushed forward with the most insistence by the Italian media.
We’ve seen multiple rumours on the matter involving the Nigerian and Manchester United, and Corriere dello Sport add to the pile on Thursday.
Il Mattino made it clear earlier in the day that no concrete movement had been made by anyone, meaning no official offers yet, and this is a line also followed by Corriere.
It’s stated ‘news is expected regarding the future of Osimhen’, described as being ‘in the crosshairs of a Premier League trio with Manchester United in the lead’.
They say that there are ‘English dangers everywhere’ on the transfer market, pointing out that Arsenal and Newcastle are also on the striker’s case.
Manchester United, down their end, ‘have asked for official information regarding the price of Osimhen’s transfer’, and have been told that there is a €110m starting point, and ‘in any case no less than €100m’.
Whether the Red Devils decide to spend that much on their new goalscorer remains to be seen, but with no Champions League football to offer going forward, they might have to delve deep into their coffers to convince both clubs and players to make the switch to Ten Hag’s squad.
