Napoli striker and reported transfer target Victor Osimhen is reportedly ‘too expensive’ for Manchester United.
Sky Sports Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg reported back in November that Osimhen was one of the ‘top candidates’ to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who went on to join Saudi side Al Nassar.
However, it was said that Napoli would want not want to let him go in January, and his price may be a stumbling block.
Taking to Twitter, Plettenberg has now given an update on Osimhen, saying that he is ‘still on the list’ of United, but he is ‘no longer’ the top transfer target, as he has been deemed ‘too expensive’ at €100m (£88m):
“News #Osimhen: He is still on the list of #MUFC but no longer the top transfer target in summer. Biggest problem: Too expensive! Neapel wants more than €100m. Been told: Man Utd board is not willing to pay that price and is therefore looking for cheaper solutions.”
