Man United could offer Rasmus Hojlund in a ‘Surprise’ swap deal to sign £105m incredible Napoli striker amid strong Chelsea links

If Recent claims are to be believed, Manchester United seems prepared to go all out to sign Napoli striker Victor Osimhen

The media has been associating United for a number of months with the Nigerian striker, who was instrumental in Napoli’s Serie A victory in the 2022–2023 campaign.

With 26 goals in 32 games and five assists, Osimhen led the Serie A scorers’ chart that season. Osimhen continued to play well last season, recording 15 goals and three assists in 25 games as the team’s results collapsed.

Transfermarkt According to sources that The Peoples Person recapped in April, Napoli indicated a readiness to part ways with their star striker and was considering Jonathan David of Lille as a possible replacement.

A month later, Italian football agent Andrea D’Amico made an outlandish claim that United could convince Napoli to send Osimhen to Old Trafford by offering them Rasmus Hojlund in return.

With no further movement reported since D’Amico’s eyebrow-raising claim, Arsenal emerged as a contender in the race to sign the Nigerian goal machine.

Still, with Osimhen’s release clause standing at €120 million, signing the player would prove to be a costly affair.

Just six days ago, United were reportedly looking into ways of getting around Osimhen’s steep release clause. This includes offering Napoli Mason Greenwood plus some additional cash for the striker.

If that progress wasn’t encouraging enough, on Friday, Antonio Conte indicated that Osimhen would indeed leave the club this summer, meaning that United could be in with a chance to lure him to Old Trafford.

While D’Amico’s swap proposal may have been long forgotten, it now appears as if the agent’s seemingly outlandish idea may be more possible than first realised.

La Repubblica reported that United are poised to submit an offer for Osimhen that includes Hojlund and some additional cash. Still, the Italian newspaper noted that the Red Devils could decide to simply continue their pursuit of Bologna’s Joshua Zirkzee instead.

Parting ways with Hojlund in exchange for Osimhen could be viewed as a questionable decision by United, particularly given the hefty price tag they originally paid for the Danish striker as well as his progress during his debut season at the club. Still, should Osimhen be made available, it would be difficult to pass up the opportunity to sign what could be an elite striker.
