Newcastle United or Manchester United for Victor Osimhen?

We believe Manchester United are ahead of Newcastle United in the race for Napoli striker Osimhen.

Yes, Newcastle have reportedly already been in touch regarding a summer move and PIF its wealthy owners, but Manchester United are one of the biggest clubs in the world and are a global brand.

Playing for the Red Devils could be very tempting for Osimhen, who would also get the chance to play alongside the legendary Cristiano Ronaldo at Old Trafford.

If – and that is a big if – Newcastle are able to secure Osimhen’s services, then in our view that would be a major coup.

The No. 9 Naples has scored 13 goals this season and provided two assists in 22 Serie A starts and scored four goals in three Europa League starts.
