Cristiano Ronaldo’s agent Jorge Mendes has been in contact with Napoli over a possible swap deal involving Victor Osimhen, reports Sky Italy.
Over the last few weeks, the forward has been the subject of widespread speculation around his future. It is believed that he wishes to leave the Red Devils before the end of the transfer window, hoping to play in the Champions League. However, his next destination is unclear.
According to Sky Italy, he could be on his way to Napoli. Mendes, Ronaldo’s agent, has reportedly been in contact with the Serie A outfit, and has enquired about a player plus cash deal involving Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen.
However, a direct swap is not going to be enough to bring Osimhen to Man Utd. The report states that Napoli will demand up to nine figures for their star forward.
That deal is getting closer. Napoli were interested in Ronaldo when it was first revealed he wanted to leave Old Trafford earlier in the summer.
With less than a week left before the summer transfer market window shuts close, it is difficult to see how a move can be executed between the two parties.
