Euro giants prepared to accept cash plus Greenwood from Man United for their striker

Manchester United need a new striker this summer with the team needing a player who is a prolific scorer.

The demand for a new striker increased further when Anthony Martial left the club this summer following the expiry of his contract at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils scored 57 goals in the Premier League in the 2023-24 season, which is the joint-lowest in the top half of the league.

Teams like West Ham, Newcastle United and Aston Villa all scored more goals than United, which shows the need for a new attacker at the club.

Man United have been linked with several strikers this summer including Joshua Zirkzee, Benjamin Sesko, Ivan Toney and Victor Osimhen.

The club have received a major boost in their pursuit of Napoli striker Osimhen as the Italian giants are prepared to accept Mason Greenwood plus cash in a deal for the Nigerian striker, according to La Repubblica via Spazio Napoli.

The Red Devils are looking to cash in on Greenwood after his impressive loan spell at Getafe in La Liga last season.

Man United have been encouraged to make a move for Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

The attacker has no future at the club since his controversial off the field behaviour and the club chiefs are looking to permanently show him the exit door at Old Trafford this summer.

Greenwood is reportedly liked by Napoli Sporting Director Giovanni Manna, which may present Man United with an opportunity to include him in a player-plus-cash deal for Osimhen.

Osimhen can take Man United attack to the next level

Nigerian striker Osimhen has shown he is one of the best players in the world in his position but his astronomical release clause of €130m has made if difficult for potential suitors to sign him.

The inclusion of Greenwood in the deal may soften Napoli’s stance regarding Osimhen’s exit and make it possible for United to sign the striker.

If United can proceed to sign Osimhen, it would be a statement signing for the Reds and it would send a strong message to all the Premier League rivals.

  1. Why blow most of the transfer money on one striker when we need so many other players and J. R has said they are not going to pay silly money for any player they want Everton centre back but wont pay huge fee for him so why change the rule for Victor
    Osimhen

    1. It’s better we get a proven striker who can lead our attack next season because we are very poor in the goal numbers.
      Instead of wasting the money on some average players it’s better we get one proven striker for now.

  2. United may need a couple of windows where they are seen to walk away from over priced players, to undo the damage of the Woodward era. FFP has changed the landscape, deals for players like Osimhen are simply not on our agenda, and rightly so.

  3. I think Osimhen will be a better player at Manchester united they should please hurry up to make it happen

  4. To win trophies we need some proven players,than buying many average players,man City went in that direction,that is why it is dominating England. If we want trophies in the next 6 years then let’s nurture younger talents.

  5. When you watch Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City, they are quick to get players but why is Man United not as such? At least getting Oshimen or Morata together with Jonathan of Lille will be a right option for our striking option. We must also add about two defenders with two midfielders too

  6. Good for Napoli not mean he’s good for MUN too. Club must learn from previous transfer, bought many superstar but didn’t works.

  7. Keep Greenwood please. Man United should swallow the pride and keep Greenwood if they are to be serious contenders.

  8. Osimhen wouldn’t shine at man u with the current midfielders United have they should buy osimhen and Ivan Toney plus two midfielders to competite for EPL title next season

  9. MUN should swallow the pride, to win more and compete better the team need players combination of Greenwood, Kobbie, Ganacho and Rusmus. Red devil should focus on something better like winning trophies not listening to much to the fans.

    1. Greenwood is not ready to stay at Manchester United beyond 2025 after his contract expires
