Italian agent Andrea D’Amico, has suggested that Manchester United could sign Victor Osimhen through a swap deal that will involve Rasmus Højlund moving to Napoli and the Nigeria international moving the other way round.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the owner of the club’s minority owners INEOS, is keen on changing the fortunes of the Premier League giants by signing high-profile players like the Super Eagles forward.

In order to stay within the limit of the Premier League Profit and Sustainability Rules,they are ready to let go of high-earning players that are deemed surplus to requirements to make way for new players.

French duo Raphaël Varane and Anthony Martial are already set to leave on a free upon the expiration of their contracts while Casemiro could also be shown the exit door after a disastrous end to the campaign.

Højlund, who moved to Old Trafford last summer, has had a decent start to life in England, scoring 16 goals in all competitions but there is no gainsaying that Osimhen will be a huge upgrade on the former Atalanta forward.

Speaking to TEAMtalk, D’Amico has claimed that Manchester United could be open to letting the Denmark international leave for Napoli while they get Osimhen in return.

“The future of Osimhen? It’s difficult to say now, we’re in May and it’s not a small deal so we’ll have to wait.”

“He speaks English, the Premier League is the most important championship in the world. He doesn’t go to Barcelona and Real Madrid and if he doesn’t go to PSG or Bayern either, he will only be left with the Premier League.”

“Osimhen-Hojlund exchange with United? It’s feasible, Manchester United respects the characteristics where Osimhen could play, in short, it’s a plausible scenario.”

The 25-year-old is in high-demand with PSG and Chelsea willing to sign him but the Napoli striker is said to be willing to move to the Premier League and not the Ligue 1 where he last played.
