According to famous journalist Di Marzio, Osimhen’s £105million asking price would not be a problem for United, who are desperately interested in the Nigerian.

He explained as per Soccer News:

“Man United have to pay at least 120 million euros for him [Osimhen], but Premier League clubs have that option, so it could well happen.
