Manchester United have made contact for the signing of Lille striker Victor Osimhen, according to a report on Thursday.

It’s the Italian media who brings some news about the case, as journalist Ciro Venerato spoke to CalcioNapoli24 about the race for the player, who is widely expected to sign for Napoli in a €50m+ deal.

He claims the Red Devils called Osimhen’s new agent ‘hours ago’ just to know if he had already signed for the Serie A side, with whom he’s in advanced negotiations.

Venerato considers that Osimhen’s deal with the Italian side would be very unlikely to collapse, especially because Manchester United are yet to make an official move for the player yet.
