Manchester United is poised to break the British transfer record with a £123m deal that will excite Tottenham.
Even though Marcus Rashford has been in outstanding form, Manchester United is actively searching for a new center-forward in the transfer market. Rashford has recently been playing in central positions while Wout Weghorst takes on the No. 10 role.
Multiple sources, including the Telegraph, agree that Erik ten Hag is seeking a new striker for the team, despite the impressive performances of Marcus Rashford who has recently been playing in a central position, while Wout Weghorst takes up the No 10 role.
According to reports from various sources, including The Telegraph, Manchester United coach Erik ten Hag is looking for a new No 9 striker despite Marcus Rashford’s excellent form.
The club is said to be considering Harry Kane from Tottenham and Victor Osimhen from Napoli. However, both transfers come with challenges, as Spurs may not want to sell to a domestic rival, and Napoli is known for being a tough negotiator. In addition, both players are expected to cost more than £100m.
Despite this, recent reports suggest that Napoli’s president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, may be softening his stance on Osimhen. Although he had previously stated that Osimhen was not for sale at any price, he recently said that “sometimes there are offers you can’t refuse”.
Osimhen has scored 18 goals and made four assists in 19 Serie A matches this season and has shown a willingness to press and display all-action performances that would suit Ten Hag’s style of play. A fresh report out of Italy has now provided an update on Osimhen’s future and revealed that Man Utd may face stiff competition for his signature.

Paul Merson says Tottenham have a top talent in their ranks who can make a significant impact
Both players would cost north of £100m, which may prove to be a challenge. However, recent reports indicate that Aurelio De Laurentiis, the president of Napoli, has softened his stance on Osimhen’s sale, stating that he may consider offers that he cannot refuse. Osimhen himself has left the door open for a blockbuster exit, stating that he is focused on Napoli but that attracting the interest of top clubs motivates him to do more for himself and his team. The article also suggests that Chelsea will provide stiff competition for United in the race to sign Osimhen.
If United is able to sign him, it will be welcomed news for Tottenham, as it will remove the largest obstacle standing between Harry Kane and a long-term contract extension.
