The latest Man Utd transfer news headlines with Erik ten Hag’s side securing UEFA Champions League football next season after beating Chelsea.

Manchester United may have secured a top four finish this season but they still have to finish off their 2022/23 Premier League campaign against Fulham this weekend.

After they face the Cottagers at Old Trafford they can turn their full attention to the FA Cup final against Manchester City and then the summer transfer window. The biggest ongoing story surrounding the club at the moment is their rumoured pursuit of Napoli striker Victor Osimhen.

The 24-year old has been linked with a move to the Red Devils for well over a year now while several other of Europe’s very biggest clubs have also been in the discussion. Now, it looks like United have been told just how much the Nigerian hitman is going to cost them if they want to bring him in this summer.

Per a report from The Mirror, who reference Naples-based publication Il Mattino, the Serie A champions have placed a staggering £140 million price tag on their star forward. It follows as part of a report that the striker’s teammate at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, Kim Min-jae, has already agreed to move to Old Trafford this summer.

It is claimed that the South Korean international will make the switch to the Premier League just one season after moving to Naples from Fenerbahce. The 26-year old is said to have a £43million release clause in his current Napoli contract.

It is said that a deal for the player is ‘in place’ and that he has ‘no doubts’ about joining United, all that remains is for the Red Devils to front up the money to trigger his release clause. As for Osimhen, it is claimed that the £140 million price tag is negotiable and that Napoli are willing to sell the player but it doesn’t look like it will be for much less than the quoted figure.
