A media report has claimed that Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made an attempt to convince Nigeria international forward and Lille star, Victor Osimhen to consider a switch to the Old Trafford but he has now been let down with the latest move.

Victor Osimhen has been confirmed as an Italian Serie A outfit, Napoli after weeks of speculations linking him to a number of clubs in the summer transfer window.

French outlet, L’Equipe via Daily Star is reporting that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been left disappointed with the development regarding Victor Osimhen especially as he has spoken personally with the player on a possible move.

However, commentators have claimed that the Red Devils will not be able to afford a new player like the Nigerian international because of their bid to have England Jadon Sancho and Aston Villa star Jack Grealish in their team come next season.

With manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer considering new recruits, there is no doubt that he will solve his defensive issues before considering other options in the attack.

Meanwhile, Victor Osimhen will begin a new life with Napoli after claiming to be influenced by the history of the club and the plans they have for him in the coming season.
