Manchester United and Chelsea have attacking issues despite spending big in the summer
It will be futile for Super Eagles striker Victor Osimhen to leave Napoli for any club in Italy or abroad during the January transfer window
This was disclosed by Italian transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano in a YouTube chat with the United Stand in response to trending rumours that United could go for Osimhen in another four months.
The transfer expert Romano believes that Napoli would not make Osimhen, the club’s most valuable player, available for transfer midway through what is shaping up to be an interesting campaign.
The Neapolitans remained at the top of the Serie A table after trashing AC Milan 2-1 at the San Siro on Sunday in Osimhen’s absence.
Luciano Spalletti’s men are also the clear leader of their UEFA Champions League group following convincing victories over Liverpool and Glasgow Rangers.
As the league progresses in the second half of the season, it would be impossible for Napoli to sell their key player in January.
Moreover, as Fabrizio Romano stated, “Victor Osimhen, I think he will never be available in January.
Speaking on Transfer interest in Osimhen
This sounds like bad news to several major European clubs with Osimhen on their list.
Manchester United and Chelsea also showed interest in the Nigerian attacker in the summer.
But Chelsea later signed former Arsenal man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang while Man United spent heavily to secure Brazil’s Antony from Ajax.
Despite spending heavily for both clubs on players,It has still not yielded the desired effect in attack for both clubs.
Raheem Sterling and Kai Havertz are the only attacking players to have scored for the Blues in the EPL this term.
While for United, there has been just one goal scored between new boy Antony, veteran forward Cristiano Ronaldo, and Frenchman Anthony Martial.
Before nursing his latest injury, Osimhen had secured two goals and one assist in five Serie A games.
The 23-year-old striker is also in the third year of the five-year contract he signed when joining Napoli from Lille in 2020.
