Romano sets the record straight on reports linking Bayern with Man Utd, Chelsea target Osimhen:: All Nigeria Soccer
Transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano has shed light on reports that claimed Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich are in pole position to sign Victor Osimhen in the summer.
Reports in recent days suggested that Bayern Munich have joined Manchester United and Chelsea in the race for the signature of the Napoli striker, and are ready to break their transfer record to acquire the Nigeria national teamer.
France international Lucas Hernández became the most expensive player in Bayern Munich history when he joined the Bavarians from Atlético de Madrid in exchange for 80 million euros in the summer of 2019.
Romano has confirmed that the future of Osimhen will be decided at the end of the season, and clarified that no concrete discussions have taken place between Bayern and Napoli regarding the signing of the striker.
Bayern Munich are in the market for a striker and reportedly have Osimhen, Benfica’s Goncalo Ramos and Eintracht Frankfurt’s Randal Kolo Muani on their list of possible targets to reinforce the attack.
“Bayern are just exploring the strikers market, it’s not time for concrete negotiations yet,” Romano told Caughtoffside.
“Victor Osimhen’s situation will be clarified at the end of the season, not now for sure.
“They don’t even know how much money is needed for Osimhen as there’s no clear price tag from Napoli yet, so it’s too early now.”
Osimhen has two years left on his contract with Napoli, whom he joined from Lille for a club record fee of 70 million euros in 2020.
