Victor Osimhen is blocked!



All the clubs – Manchester United, Chelsea and PSG among other jostling to sign Nigeria’s in-form striker, Victor Osimhen, may be labouring in vain.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has once again reiterated his stance on the heavily talented player, insisting that Osimhen is not for sale.
Manchester United are one of several top European clubs to have held an interest in Osimhen, who enjoyed an outstanding season with 26 goals in 32 Serie A appearances as Napoli won the title.
De Laurentiis told Sky Italy: “We will see Victor Osimhen wearing our shirt next season, that’s for sure.
“Then if a more than indecent proposal arrives, we will move on and find another top talent as we did with Kvaratskhelia and Osimhen.”
