BREAKING NEWS: Pochettino has persuaded the star Nigerian player to accept this amazing deal by using distinct tactics that are reminiscent of previous Chelsea coaches.

Recent reports indicate that Manchester United has emerged as the front-runner to sign Victor Osimhen of Napoli, which is a surprising development.

After a disappointing season, the gifted striker is expected to leave the Italian team, and rumors suggest that his departure may be made easier by a reported release clause worth about €130 million.

This clause enables prospective buyers to purchase Osimhen without having to speak with Napoli.

In the past, the Nigerian forward was frequently associated with Chelsea, Arsenal, and PSG.

Osimhen was seen by PSG in particular as a good Kylian Mbappe substitute, as there have been rumors of Mbappe leaving for Real Madrid.

A top-tier number nine would help Arsenal and Chelsea bolster their offensive lines, as both teams have indicated.

At first, reports that Osimhen wanted to play like Blues great Didier Drogba gave Chelsea hope that they would be able to sign him.

But Chelsea’s hopes of acquiring Osimhen were weakened by rumors that his Napoli teammate Khvicha Kvaratskhelia may reject him.

Ratcliffe’s interest in Osimhen as a high-profile Chelsea acquisition, subject to the team’s Champions League qualification, was also a subject of rumors.

But recent defeats have made Chelsea’s chances of qualifying for the Champions League uncertain, which has changed the nature of their pursuit of Osimhen.

It’s interesting that the most recent report does not state that winning the Champions League is a requirement for Osimhen’s possible transfer.

It is surprising to learn that Manchester United has entered the race as a top choice, especially in light of the team’s concurrent pursuit of Michael Olise, whose signing would also require a sizable transfer fee.

For Manchester United, the combined effort to sign both Olise and Osimhen would require a sizable financial outlay of about €200 million.

The competition to sign Osimhen takes surprising turns as the transfer saga progresses, changing the landscape of possible destinations for the prolific striker.

The current developments in the transfer market are made more intriguing by Manchester United’s rise to the top.
