Man United approves spending £ 100 million to upgrade attack: Prioritize Kane and Osimhen
Man United made three loan signings in the January transfer window, but the Old Trafford team’s Board of Directors will continue to provide coach Erik ten Hag with big money to buy more players in the summer. In particular, the main priority is to upgrade the striker.
The Red Devils now need more long-term attack options in the context of having to use the temporary option of 30-year-old Wout Weghorst on loan from Burnley in January. Besides, another number 9, Antony Martial, struggled to maintain his fitness to be able to play regularly.
According to The Mirror, the first name that MU targets is Osimhen of Napoli. The 24-year-old Nigerian striker has scored 16 goals to help Napoli stay 13 points away from the top of Serie A. This is a name that fully meets the criteria of coach Ten Hag in an effort to rejuvenate the team the Red Devil. However, to get the service of Oshihem, Man United will have to pay 120 million euros (about 107 million pounds) to meet the requirements of the Napoli management team.
In addition to Man United, the compatriot Chelsea team is also very interested in the service of Oshimhen, who still has a contract with Napoli until June 2025. Therefore, Napoli completely holds the right to self-determination at the negotiating table.
In the list of outstanding strikers of Ten Hag, Osimhen is a prominent choice next to Tottenham’s “talisman” Harry Kane as well as the emerging striker in Benfica’s shirt, Goncalo Ramos.
With Kane, the captain of England has just entered Tottenham’s history when he became the team’s greatest striker and his contract is only until June 2024. However, the latest move from Tottenham’s Board of Directors shows that they did not listen to any offers for the 29-year-old striker and decided to keep him by soon negotiating a contract extension.
The last name is Goncalo Ramos may be the most likely target for Man United. The 21-year-old Portuguese striker matured from Benfica’s youth academy and has a contract with the Lisbon capital team until June 2026 with a release clause of 120 million euros. This is the amount that is within MU’s ability to approve spending.
In short, under the direction of Ten Hag, Man United had many unexpected comebacks. Let’s wait and see how MU will develop this year! Don’t forget to follow Livefootballgameschedule.com for real-time fixtures, scores, and results.
