Victor Osimhen, a Nigerian striker, reportedly has his heart set on playing for either Manchester United or Real Madrid rather than any of the other major teams in Europe that are interested in recruiting him. Saturday PUNCH has reportedly obtained this information.
Salvatore Bagni, a former Napoli legend who was a member of the Napoli team that won the Scudetto and Coppa Italia double in 1987, alongside Diego Maradona, has stated that he does not expect Osimhen to return to a country where he has already played and that he will settle for nothing less than Champions League football. Bagni was a teammate of Maradona on the Napoli team that won the double in 1987. Maradona was a member of the Napoli side that triumphed in both league and cup competitions in 1987.
Since Victor Osimhen has already fought in France, he has no intention of returning to that country in the near future. Bagni made the observation that the same thing could be said about Germany.
It seems unlikely that he will ever play for any of those teams because neither Liverpool nor Chelsea are qualified to participate in the Champions League. Out of all the other teams that are associated with him, I believe that he would only play for Manchester United or Real Madrid if he were to play professionally. He has no interest in going up against any of the other teams in the competition.
The fact that the 24-year-old would spend the season 2019/2020 at Lille before joining Napoli, if Bagni’s prognosis is to be believed, may make it more difficult for PSG to achieve its goal of signing the Nigerian player. Although Osimhen had ties to Bayern Munich, he got his start in the professional game with Wolfsburg.
Liverpool, who ended in fifth place in the Premier League the previous season, will compete in the Europa League, whilst Chelsea, who finished in 12th place in the top level of English football, will not participate in any European competition at all. This is due to the fact that Liverpool finished in fifth place in the Premier League the previous season.
As a result of his 31 goals scored in 39 appearances in all competitions for Napoli, Osimhen is considered to be one of the most dangerous strikers on the continent. According to Transfermarkt, which is a platform for football news, transfer rumors, and statistics, he is the third most valuable striker in the world with a price tag of €120 million. The two strikers who have a higher price tag are Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland, who are each valued at €180 million. Osimhen is widely regarded as one of the most lethal attackers on the African continent.
Due to the fact that Osimhen scored a total of 26 goals during this season in Serie A, he became the first African player in the history of the competition to ever be given the title of Goal King in Italy.
He surpassed the feats of George Weah, Samuel Eto’o, and Obafemi Martins, each of whom was a prior recipient of the World Footballer of the Year award. He became the first striker from Africa to finish as the top scorer in the top league. He did this by being the first African to finish as the top scorer in the top league.
