The Nigerian was linked to United in the summer, however, with him and Napoli doing so well this season currently sitting top of Serie A with 56 points, having a 13-point lead between them and Inter Milan in second place, Osimhen scored 18 goals in the last year’s campaign.
He has also said that he aims to win a trophy with Partenopei during his time there. Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti also said at the start of this season that Osimhen is a vital part of his squad.
Before joining the Italian outfit he played for LOSC Lille in Ligue 1 where he impressed under Christophe Galtier and won the league in 2021, with it being a massive shock in French football because of the dominance of Paris Saint Germain over the years and occasionally Monaco and Marseille challenging and winning some titles.
Various other clubs in Europe are interested in signing the striker so if United want to sign him you would think that they have to act quickly, to get his signature.
