Transfer Rumour: Manchester United opens Negotiations to Sign Victor Osimhen

Manchester United opens Negotiations to Sign Victor Osimhen

Manchester United have opened arrangements for the summer signing of Lille's top striker striker Victor Osimhen, reports claim. The Nigerian player with 38 career goals to his name, has shot to fame over the previous year since moving to Ligue 1 from Belgian football. 

Osimhen got 18 goals in his debut campaign with Lille and has since been connected with many top European teams. The transfer race appeared to be all but recently as reported, Naples were closing in signing the 21-year-old attacker in an arrangement worth more than €50m. 

However, Manchester United have joined the run at the eleventh hour as the Norwegian boss wants to bring in a new striker to old Trafford. United made contact with the striker's agent hours ago to know all his transfer updates.

It is possible that the red devils approach is a strategy from the striker's agent to trigger the deal from Napoli and secure a better contract for the player.

Meanwhile, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still planning to bring in another attacker to Manchester since Ighalo is staying on loan, and once he leaves there will be no perfect substitute for Manchester attacking line(Rashford, Martial and Greenhood).

This lack of cover was proven on Thursday, as Rashford, Anthony and Mason began together for the fifth time in just 17 days as Red won Crystal palace to maintain the top-four battle.
