Manchester United transfer target Victor Osimhen has spoken out on a potential transfer this summer.

Manchester United are in the market for a striker this summer and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen has been linked with a move to Old Trafford. 

Cristiano Ronaldo, 37, scored a total of 24 goals in 39 appearances last season but he’s the only recognised centre-forward at the club.

Victor Osimhen contributed 18 goals and six assists in 32 appearances for Napoli last season and his performances have seen him linked with a transfer away from Italy.

Manchester United, Arsenal and Saudi-backed Newcastle have been credited with an interest in the player.

Victor Osimhen has claimed anything can happen regarding his future this summer amid interest from Manchester United.

“First of all, I am happy about this win. For me, I think my business with the national team stays and my business with the club stays with me,” Osimhen told reporters when asked about his future amid interest from Manchester United.

“About my future, I know there are many rumours that would like me in Spain or England, but I don’t think it’s the right time to talk about it now that I’m with the national team.

“I always go out on the pitch to do my best both with the national team and with my club.

“I don’t know my future, I know anything can happen, but now I just want to go on vacation with my family, clear my head and recharge my batteries.

“Then we’ll take care of everything else”.

Manchester United were interested in signing Darwin Nunez but the Red Devils refused to be drawn into a bidding war with Liverpool.

With Nunez completing a transfer to Liverpool, Manchester United could make a move for Osimhen.

Osimhen recently scored four goals and provided two assists as Nigeria beat Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 in their second Group A game of the 2023 AFCON qualifiers.

Osimhen is contracted at Napoli until the summer of 2025 after joining from French club Lille in the summer of 2020 for €70million.
