Napoli will soon hold a summit with the representatives of Victor Osimhen to take stock of the future of the striker and start discussing a potential contract extension. He’s currently tied to the team until 2025. The striker hasn’t shut the door to a possible renewal, Gianluca Di Marzio informs.
The parties are on good terms, but his camp will also ask about his price tag. He’s drawing interest from PSG, Real Madrid, and Manchester United. The pursuits haven’t progressed much at this stage, especially because the Azzurri demand a boatload of money.
Per Corriere dello Sport, Bayern Munich are keen and could offer up to €100M for Osimhen, but it might not be enough to convince Napoli. According to Onze Mondial, the Partenopei replied to the inquiries from PSG with a €130M request.
The Red Devils might pull out of the race altogether because they consider the fee excessive, The Manchester Evening News reports. According to Sportitalia, the reigning Scudetto champions would pursue Beto if the capocannoniere departed, but there haven’t been direct talks with Udinese so far.
Our Take on Napoli and Osimhen
The Partenopei are reasonably stubborn and masterful when it comes to sales. If he doesn’t push to leave, and there are no indications he is or will, they have no reason to do it this summer. The injury risk is present, but his valuation could even increase because he had just one complete season since joining. Things might be headed toward a new contract with a lofty but not exorbitant release clause.
