Following the arrival of Erik ten Hag, the mentality at Manchester United shifted dramatically, with no one allowed to be bigger than the club.

Cristiano Ronaldo learned that the hard way, eventually getting frozen out from the Red Devils’ squad, which led to him being released from his contract at Old Trafford.

With limited funds to replace him, Manchester United decided to sign Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley, which cancelled his deal with Besiktas in the process, but that isn’t a long-term solution.

The most insistent story since last summer has been the one linking the Premier League side with Victor Osimhen, and that continues to this day.

La Repubblica, relayed by Calcio Napoli 24, on Wednesday, have a bit on the Nigeria international, and following his public speech reasserting his dream of playing in England, it’s said that Manchester United ‘are always ready to court him after the failed attempt last August’.

They are seemingly referring to the attempt from Jorge Mendes to place Cristiano Ronaldo in Naples with Osimhen going the other way, which never looked set to take off.

Napoli want money for their star and know clubs will have it in the summer, with €150m the price reportedly set to sign the goalscorer.
