Osimhen has been linked with a potential big-money move to England but the latest indications suggest the story isn’t done
The Napoli forward on Monday tweeted and indicated that his future is with the Neapolitans despite strong links to the Premier League.
Osimhen has been a subject of transfer interest in the last few days with a swap deal with Ronaldo first suggested while a full €140m move has been also seen in the papers.
The Nigerian forward however hasn’t indicated anything close to ready for a Manchester United move and if his latest tweet on Monday is anything to go by, his eyes are in Naples.

The former Lille forward indicated he has his sight on Napoli’s next game against Lecce on Wednesday which is the last day of the transfer window. What the coming days will offer on terms of transfer drama is yet to be known but a deal to Manchester United is highly unlikely.
How likely is Osimhen’s move to Man Utd?
With Manchester United set to complete an £80m transfer for Brazilian winger, Antony, it’s clear where Erik Ten Hag’s targets are.
His strong links with Ajax Amsterdam has seen him prefer the Brazilian in place of an attacker. With Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in the team as their two number 9s, and with Antony also joining the wingers ranks, Man Utd are not expected to also move in a big money transfer for another forward player.
This explains why Osimhen’s next target is Lecce and not an airplane to the Manchester Airport.
