Victor Osimhen breaks silence on Man Utd transfer after helping Napoli end 33-year Serie A title drought | The Sun
NAPOLI superstar Victor Osimhen has broken his silence over a potential blockbuster transfer this summer.
The Nigerian striker has fired the Italian club to their first Serie A title in 33 years in record-breaking fashion.
He has scored 27 goals in all competitions, and his strike to earn a draw at Udinese on Thursday to clinch the Scudetto made him the highest-scoring African player in a single season in Italian top-flight history.
But the 24-year-old’s performances have caught the eye of a host of clubs across the continent.
Chelsea are known to be interested as they hunt for a new striker under incoming boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Manchester United would also like to bring Osimhen to the Premier League.

The ace has other suitors in Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain but it was widely-believed that Osimhen would prefer a move to England's top flight.
However, when he was asked about his future during the celebrations on Thursday, the hotshot refused to give anything away.
Osimhen said: “I'm thrilled with this victory.
“I'm happy for me, for the team and for the fans.

“I can't wait to come back in Naples to embrace our fans, even though tonight I already felt the warmth of the people. I'm happy for all the Neapolitans.”
Osimhen then added: “I scored the Scudetto goal, it's true, but anyone else could have scored it.
“I feel like a leader and I never give up. Future? Now I want to enjoy this historic moment, this is not the time to think about my future.”
