| Last updated
Manchester United have been handed a major boost in their pursuit of Victor Osimhen, following reports that he could snub Paris Saint-Germain.
Osimhen has enjoyed an excellent season at Napoli, scoring 26 goals in all competitions this term.
The 24-year-old has been heavily rumoured with a summer move to Old Trafford. Although Erik Ten Hag was forced to cool his pursuit after PSG emerged as frontrunners for his signature.
But Osimhen could snub the Ligue 1 club, with talks now more 'concrete' with Manchester United, according to Sky Sports reporter Florian Plettenberg.
Man Utd braced for internal race
Plettenberg revealed that 'PSG is not the hottest option' for Osimhen at this stage, despite the French club's efforts to bring him to the Stade de France.
However, things are reportedly more 'concrete' with Premier League clubs Chelsea and Manchester United. While he is also on Bayern Munich's watchlist. Although the German giants have been put off by his price tag.
Napoli are still demanding upward of €150 million (£132m) for the Nigerian, who admitted he 'dreamed' of a move to the Premier League.
Plettenberg added that United are now braced for an 'internal race' between Osimhen and Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani, who is allegedly valued at £105 million.
Sky Germany report that United have opened talks with the player over a potential move. While it is thought the Frenchman is a higher priority than Osimhen.
'United push without end,' the publication states. 'They are on him. This is the club that is currently giving the most gas - even more than Bayern. At United, Kolo Muani is ranked higher than Victor Osimhen.'
