Italian Serie A giants, SC Napoli have demanded £118 million plus Cristiano Ronaldo from Manchester United in exchange for Super Eagles striker, Victor Osimhen
Osimhen became United’s top transfer target following Ronaldo’s increasing discontentment at the Old Trafford
Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes is currently in talks with Napoli with Manchester United reportedly offered a fee plus Cristiano Ronaldo for Victor Osimhen.
According to reports, if a Ronaldo-Osimhen swap with Manchester United happens, where Man Utd pay 70% of Cristiano’s weekly wages (£336K) & also pay Napoli £118 Million for the transfer of Victor, the entire deal would cost United £130M a year, excluding Osimhen’s wages.
The deal is said to be “progressing” as Osimhen is a player admired at United and on their list of possible replacements
Sky Sports says Mendes is working hard to find Ronaldo the solution he wants – to play in the Champions League – but also to provide a solution for United, which is a replacement.
One proposal Mendes has made to Napoli is for Ronaldo to move there and United to buy their Nigeria striker Victor Osimhen.
Napoli, however, would only accept a triple-digit offer for Osimhen and it is difficult to see how United could afford him with the money they are prepared to commit to buying Antony from Ajax.
That deal is getting closer. Napoli were interested in Ronaldo when it was first revealed he wanted to leave Old Trafford earlier in the summer.
The summer 2022 transfer window for clubs in the 2022/23 Premier League will close at 11pm BST on 1 September 2022.
For last year’s summer deadline, which was also 11pm, a deal sheet could not be used before 9pm, and had to arrive fully completed before the transfer window closed.
