Napoli striker Victor Osimhen’s agent has denied reports his client may be swapping for Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo. “There is no negotiation, no exchange,” wrote Roberto Calenda on Twitter.
Osimhen has no intention of deserting the Italians, he continued. “Victor is a Napoli player and wants to play in the Champions League with the club after proudly qualifying for it with his team-mates and the coach,” he added.
Napoli coach Luciano Spalletti also denied that there were negotiations with Ronaldo or ManUnited. “I would love to train him but there are no talks going on.” Club boss Aurelio de Laurentiis assured him that United had not contacted him.
“We should be realistic: the transfer market will close in a few days and that would be a difficult deal,” said Spalletti.
100 million euros plus CR7 for Osimhen?
the tuttosport recently caused a stir with a message that both clubs would negotiate a move from Osimhen to the Red Devils. There was a transfer fee of 100 million euros, in return Ronaldo should move to Naples on loan.
Ronaldo has been looking to leave Manchester for a few weeks as the club failed to qualify for the Champions League. In Naples, the Portuguese would have the opportunity to play in the premier class. His advisor Jorge Mendes offered him to the club some time ago and the Partenopei should not be averse to a transfer either.
