Napoli President Offers Osimhen Contract Extension
Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis has confirmed that the club is willing to offer Victor Osimhen a two-year contract extension upon his return to Naples. The Nigerian striker has been in impressive form for the club, scoring 31 goals this season, with 26 of those goals coming in the Italian Serie A.
Osimhen’s exceptional form has attracted interest from top clubs worldwide, including Chelsea, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid. However, Napoli appears reluctant to part ways with their prized striker unless an extraordinary offer of €150 million materializes.
During the presentation of Napoli’s new coach, Rudi Garcia, President Aurelio De Laurentiis emphasized his priority of extending Osimhen’s contract. He expressed his unwavering intention to keep Osimhen in Naples and stated that only an extraordinary offer would compel him to consider selling the Nigerian sensation.
De Laurentiis confirmed that he had already spoken to Osimhen about the contract extension before the party and that they were in principle in agreement on the extension of the contract for another two years.
Osimhen joined Napoli from Lille in 2020 for a fee that made him the most expensive African player in history. His contributions have been particularly significant for Napoli, as he played a vital role in securing the Scudetto, Napoli’s first league title in 33 years.
In conclusion, Napoli appears determined to keep hold of their prized striker, and the offer of a two-year contract extension is a clear indication of the club’s intentions. It remains to be seen whether Osimhen will sign the extension or if an extraordinary offer will materialize, but one thing is certain: the Nigerian sensation is one of the hottest properties in European football right now.
