Ronaldo swap deal for Osimhen? €140 million for offer as Man Utd moves for Nigerian forward

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Before the summer transfer window closes, Manchester United is contemplating a massive €140 million offer for Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen.

Cristiano Ronaldo's agent, Jorge Mendes, reportedly advised the Serie A heavyweights to expect a large bid for the Nigerian international, according to Il Mattino, a respectable Naples-based publication.

Ronaldo wants to play in the Champions League this year, so Mendes has been working to find him a new team.

In order to replace the Portuguese star with Osimhen, Il Mattino reports that Manchester United is even willing to pay for a significant portion of Ronaldo's salary.

In order to make room for Ronaldo's move from Old Trafford, the Serie A team is looking to offload the Nigerian. A deal worth up to €140 million is anticipated to be discussed between the two clubs in the coming days.

Many supporters feel that United lack a prolific goal-hungry striker and that Osimhen would be the ideal addition to solve United's goal-scoring problems after the team's close victory over Southampton on Saturday.

Ronaldo is apparently looking to leave Old Trafford in order to qualify for Champions League football, and Napoli is eager to bring him back to Serie A. He has already made himself available to a number of European teams, including Milan and Inter.

Osimhen has enjoyed a stellar start to the 2022/23 season, scoring in both opening Serie A matches as Napoli wallopped Hellas Verona and Monza via an aggregate score of 9-2.
