Manchester United Transfer News: Bayern Munich and Manchester United, according to Dharmesh Sheth of GiveMeSport, will compete for the services of Victor Osimhen. The 24-year-old forward has been red hot so far this season. And several teams in Europe are interested in signing him.
Osimhen transferred to Napoli from LOSC Lille in the summer of 2020. Since he joined the Italian club, he has excelled. Moreover, in 92 appearances with the Partenopei, the Nigerian international has scored 53 goals and added 14 assists. He is one of the most-wanted players in Europe at present. And there are clubs willing to pay any amount of money to acquire his services.
This season, he’s really stepped up his game. In 30 games, the 24-year-old has contributed to 30 goals. Twenty-five times he’s scored, and he’s helped out on the other five occasions. His value has skyrocketed. So, a number of teams are willing to pay through the nose to get the Napoli star.
Osimhen has a deal with the team that will keep him there until the summer of 2025. Given the high demand for his skills, he may be switching teams this summer. According to the article, Napoli might be willing to sell their star striker for roughly £132 million.

The German club Bayern Munich is among those showing interest. Moreover, there is currently no perfect alternative for Robert Lewandowski on the roster of the German giants. They need a new striker and will pay a high price for one this summer.
The Nigerian international would be a great addition to Bayern’s roster and would help alleviate a lot of pressure. They are not the only team interested in signing the 24-year-old though. Manchester United has also shown interest.
Osimhen has shown interest in playing in England, according to recent comments made by journalist Ben Jacobs. And that may aid Manchester United’s case since they’re looking to acquire a new striker. Moreover, Jacobs recently told GiveMeSport that he “wants to move to the Premier League one day.”
Coach Erik Ten Hag needs to add another striker to help out Marcus Rashford. It seems to be a necessary move, given the lack of clarity around Anthony Martial’s future and Wout Weghorst’s return to his original club. It would be intriguing to watch which of the two elite European teams wins the bidding war for the 24-year-old star striker.
