The Red Devils just cut ties with one of their icons, and they would be looking to get a worthy replacement as soon as possible
Former English Premier League champions Manchester United have parted ways with legend Cristiano Ronaldo, and they could be looking to sign Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen as his replacement.
Ronaldo’s contract at Manchester United was terminated on the 22nd of November after some frosty comments that caused friction between him and the club.
Manchester United will be looking to get a replacement for their former talisman soon, and Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen has been linked with a move to Manchester in recent months.
However, with Ronaldo still at the club, the Red Devils did not push hard for a move in the last two transfer windows. But now that the Portugal maestro is out of the picture, it is expected that Manchester United will be desperately in search of a replacement.
Also, French forward Antony Martial is the only striker at the club, but he cannot be relied upon because of his injury record.
Nonetheless, pricing Osimhen away from Napoli could be a tough ask. The 23-year-old striker is one of the hottest goal poachers in Europe and he has also been linked with big clubs.
The former Lille man is valued at over €100million, and the Partenopeans may not budge, as he still has three years left on his contract at Napoli.
Still, if Manchester United bring something substantial to the table, Napoli would be willing to let Osimhen leave.
