Napoli aim to break salary structure to retain Osimhen

Napoli is willing to deviate from the club

compensation structure to retain Nigerian international Victor Osimhen in an effort to fend off interest from European teams and keep one of their prized assets for at least another season.

In order to keep Osimhen for another season, the freshly crowned Serie A winners are reportedly mulling a Cavani-style contract, according to Sunday’s edition of La Repubblica (as reported by Tutto Napoli).

The suggested strategy include promising the striker a significant pay raise as well as a transfer at the conclusion of the following season.

This strategy would differ from Napoli’s

standard pay structure, which has a cap of €3.5m net.

Napoli is thinking about making an exemption to their wage policy for Osimhen because of his outstanding performances and potential.

The website stated: “The plan is a Cavani-style formula: to renew with a significant rise and the “promise” of a sale at the conclusion of the following season.

“Osimhen might stand for the rare instance of fixed wages of €3.5m net. A mega offer, however, cannot be ruled out by the scenario. Around €150 million is the very high price Napoli has set. It would be expected to assess the indecent offer if it were to come.

The news will be a major setback for potential bidders, particularly Chelsea, who are thought to have made the first move to sign Osimhen by putting forth a player-plus-cash offer.

The 24-year-old, who scored 23 league goals in 29 outings, was crucial to Napoli’s first championship in 33 years.

To retain their Scudetto title and make a serious run at the Champions League next season, the club is nonetheless desperate to hold onto the striker.
