Napoli Not Out of the Woods Regarding Osimhen Situation

Victor Osimhen hit the net as Napoli breezed to a healthy 4-1 win over Udinese on Wednesday, but he wasn’t exactly the picture of happiness after scoring and while subbing off in the second half. The recent controversies are weighing on him and could affect his future, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

The brass and the striker convened earlier on game day after what happened on the club’s TikTok account and cleared the air. The center-forward was properly furious about the accident but accepted the explanation. It wasn’t the first time the social media manager had done something similar toward their own players.

The bookmakers have put odds on the likelihood of Osimhen leaving Napoli in January, and they aren’t big. His friend Oma Akatugba said he’d seek to leave as soon as possible, putting it bluntly.

“He doesn’t want to stay, that’s why he didn’t sign his extension.”

On the other hand, the Partenopei would want a boatload of money to part ways with their ace. He suggested that he’d like to play in the Premier League at some point in previous interviews.

Manchester United and Chelsea figure to be in the running should Osimhen really become available. Real Madrid could potentially afford him, but it hinges on their Kylian Mbappé chase. Instead, he’s not particularly enticed by a move to Saudi Arabia, at least at this stage.
