Victor Osimhen and Napoli are on the verge of agreeing to a contract extension. His current one expires in 2025. The player and his camp want to be rewarded adequately since president Aurelio De Laurentiis has been asking for €200M to sell the marksman this summer.
According to Sky, his agent Roberto Calenda visited their pre-season retreat in Dimaro multiple times. The parties have made significant strides. The future release clause has been one of the main sticking points.
Napoli and the entourage of Osimhen could concur on setting it at €140/150M starting next summer. The parties are still debating the final number. The next meeting, which will take place in Castel Di Sangro, could be the final one.
The Nigerian star would get one or two years added to his deal. His salary will rise from €4.5M to €7M. The team would make a rare exception to their stingy policy.
Our Take on Napoli and Osimhen
It’d be a great outcome for the Partenopei if they pulled it off before the end of the window. It’s not truly an urgent matter in terms of timing since he already has two years on it, but it is, in reality, to keep the suitors and their tempting wages at bay. If the release clause were sky-high, the odds of him staying for multiple seasons would significantly increase.
