Manchester United are preparing a whopping €140m bid for Napoli striker, Victor Osimhen before the end of the summer transfer window.
According to Il Mattino, a reputable Naples-based outlet, Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has told the Serie A giants to expect a massive offer for the Nigeria international.

Mendes has been working to secure a move for Ronaldo, who wants to play in the Champions League this season.
Il Mattino claims that Manchester United are even willing to fund a large part of Ronaldo’s wages as part of a deal, which would allow them to replace the Portuguese star with Osimhen.
The Serie A side is looking to sell the Nigerian to facilitate Ronaldo’s arrival from Old Trafford, with a deal that could be worth up to €140m expected to be discussed between the two clubs in the coming days.
Having narrowly won against Southampton on Saturday, many fans believe United lacks a prolific goal-hungry striker and Osimhen could be the perfect fit to end United’s goals-scoring woes.
Napoli is reportedly keen to bring Ronaldo back to Serie A, as the veteran forward looks to leave Old Trafford to secure Champions League football. He has already offered himself to several sides in Europe, including Milan and Inter.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is an admirer of Ronaldo and is willing to cash €140m for Osimhen.
