Aurelio De Laurentiis, president of Napoli, is convinced that Super Eagles attacker Victor Osimhen would stay at the club this summer, despite interest from Manchester United.
Osimhen has been on fire this season, scoring 20 goals and assisting four times in 24 games across all competitions.
Nonetheless, De Laurentiis believes that keeping Osimhen in Naples “will not be difficult,” but he does not rule out his departure.
He told TNT Sports: ‘I am very good at making contracts, so when they come to me, they are blocked, so keeping them here won’t be difficult.
‘However, never say never. Sometimes there are offers you can’t refuse, so you never know.
‘To me, we’ll see them shine for a long time.’
Osimhen is presently helping Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years, and he scored in their 2-0 Champions League last-16 triumph over Frankfurt.
Despite his continued concentration in Italy, the 24-year-old has reluctant to commit his future to the country. ‘When you are performing that well, top clubs all over the world, mostly in the top five leagues, are watching,’ Osimhen told ESPN this week.
‘And to be able to attract interest from these top clubs shows that I am doing great and it gives me the motivation to do even more for myself and my team.
‘But I am focused on Napoli right now and they have the final say. I just want to help my team to win matches and win trophies.
‘At the end of the season, we will see what is going to happen, but that is not up to me. It is for the club to decide.’
