Manchester United momentum as Napoli eye Armando Broja to replace Victor Osimhen departure

Manchester United get a transfer boost as Napoli eyes Armando Broja for possible Victor Osimhen departure

According to the Italian media Football Naples 24 (h/t The Express), Manchester United have received a boost in their search for Victor Osimhen after Napoli lined up a move for Armando Broja as a potential replacement. The former is expected to take part in the transfer market to strengthen his attack by backing Erik ten Hag this summer.

As such, Man United have expressed an interest in signing Osimhen on a possible transfer after this season. That said, his services are not being given a free run as Arsenal are also vying to get their hands on the centre-forward. Now, both have more incentive to target the 23-year-old this summer.

The Italian club’s sporting director, Cristiano Giuntoli, has contacted Broja to analyze the possibility of a transfer as they are interested in getting him signed. They are preparing for a scenario in which Osimhen could leave, which has led them to make this decision. Talks are moving forward right now, which would certainly be great news for the Red Devils.

Can Man Utd take advantage?

It would not be too much of an exaggeration to say that the Manchester club could sign Osimhen in the summer transfer market. After all, the Serie A side are planning for life after the Nigerian, which is evident in their pursuit of Chelsea star Broja. Therefore, they could perhaps facilitate a move for their star player in the future.

We are desperate to bring in some forwards, considering Cristiano Ronaldo has had to carry the team several times in the current campaign. That’s not an ideal scenario, and with summer departures about to happen, the board needs to prepare for what lies ahead.

Osimhen would be a great choice, considering how he has developed into a full-fledged superstar since leaving Lille for Italy. The Gunners would make life difficult for us, but their failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League levels the playing field for us.

The Mancunians must move closer to Luciano Spalletti’s side and prepare things for a possible transfer this summer. After all, the best thing would be if we could put ourselves firmly in an ideal position against Mikel Arteta’s team for next season.

That said, we also face a different kind of threat in the form of Inter Milan, Southampton, AC Milan, West Ham United and Newcastle United. That’s because everything

of them are targeting Broja, and they should take down The Azzurrithe plans of, that could be problematic for our interest in Osimhen.

The Blues could also cause problems, considering that Broja has a long contract until 2026. In addition, Thomas Tuchel said that the striker would join them in pre-season, after which a decision on his future will be made. Fans would expect to see a pro-Napoli stance as it would help us in our quest to sign Osimhen.
