Napoli offer Victor Osimhen new ₦6.3 billion salary to ward off PSG, Chelsea interest

Napoli is not taking any chances with the future of their star striker Victor Osimhen. The Serie A champions have reportedly offered the Nigerian a mouth-watering ₦6.3 billion salary in a bid to keep him at the club and fend off potential suitors such as Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea.

Despite relentless interest from European clubs, Napoli’s president, ADL, is determined to keep Osimhen in Naples and recently held a meeting with the player’s representative to discuss a new contract. His current deal expires in the summer of 2025, and ADL wants him to extend it for an additional two years.

During the meeting, ADL proposed raising Osimhen’s annual salary to six million euros, with additional bonuses that could elevate it to seven million euros (approximately N6.3 bn). This offer exceeds Napoli’s usual salary structure, demonstrating the club’s determination to retain the talented forward.

However, no agreement was reached during the discussion, and further talks have been scheduled to assess the evolving situation. Should Osimhen opt for a move to PSG, Chelsea, or Real Madrid, he could potentially earn twice the amount offered by Napoli.

De Laurentiis, though open to Osimhen pursuing greener pastures, insists that any interested party would need to pay a significant sum to secure the services of the Serie A’s first African top goalscorer. Recent reports indicate that Napoli value Osimhen at €180 million, mirroring the sum PSG paid Monaco for Kylian Mbappe’s transfer in 2018.

While Osimhen may not yet match Mbappe’s overall value, he has etched his name in Serie A history as the league’s most valuable player. Napoli recognizes his importance to the team and is willing to go above and beyond to keep him at the club. It remains to be seen whether Osimhen will sign a new contract or seek pastures anew.
