Man Utd targets Victor Osimhen and Kim Min-Jae

Napoli are prepared to sell both Kim Min-jae and Victor Osimhen to Man Utd this summer if they meet their £191m demands, according to reports.

The Red Devils have made signing a striker their top priority for the summer transfer window with widespread reports indicating Tottenham’s Harry Kane is their main target.

However, with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy reportedly unwilling to sell Kane for less than £100m, Man Utd need to keep their options open in the summer.

And Osimhen is one player who has been linked heavily with the main doubt over a potential transfer being his price tag as Napoli ask for around €160m for his signature.

Man Utd also hold interest in one of Osimhen’s team-mate with speculation increasing that they are on the verge of signing South Korea international Kim.

And now a report from Italian publication Il Mattino (via ESPN) claims that Napoli are open to ‘irresistable offers’ from clubs for both Osimhen and Kim.

They reiterate that Napoli are looking for €160m for Osimhen while they are happy to accept around €60m for Kim with Man Utd having to pay €220m (£191m) for both of them.

Osimhen and Kim have been two of the standout players as Napoli won the Scudetto for the first time in 33 years and got to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Kim has a contract at Napoli until June 2025 and his release clause of €60m will become active on July 1 with Man Utd apparently ready to trigger it.

Speaking in March, Napoli manager Luciano Spalletti hailed Kim as the “best centre-back in the world”.

Spalletti said: “I’ve seen few players in my life and career with the skills and qualities of Kim Min-jae.

“He’s incredible, always aggressive — he deserves to start every game. Kim does at least 20 incredible things per game, for me he truly is the best centre-back in the world.

“When he starts the run with the ball at his feet, he can get it into the opposition penalty area in five seconds flat.”

Il Mattino add that Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in Osimhen, as well as Man Utd, after the Nigeria international scored 28 goals in all competitions this season.

Two players Napoli are unwilling to lose this summer are Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and Stanislav Lobotka despite both players having plenty of interest in their services.
