Chelsea and Manchester United blow as Napoli president names only club who can afford Victor Osimhen

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has insisted only Paris Saint-Germain can afford Victor Osimhen this summer.

That will come as a blow to Manchester United and Chelsea, who had shortlisted the Napoli star as a top target.

Both Premier League clubs are desperate to bring in a goalscorer to lead the line next season.

And there are not many better options in Europe than Osimhen after a stunning season in Serie A.

But De Laurentiis appears to have shut the door firmly in United and Chelsea’s faces.

“The only club that could afford Victor Osimhen is Paris Saint-Germain,” De Laurentiis told Mediaset.

“If Nasser Al Khelaifi [PSG president] wants to send in a bid around €200m (£170m) we wait and we see what happens.

“I personally think that Victor will stay here.”

United’s budget is somewhat restricted after signing Mason Mount for £55m while Andre Onana is on the brink of joining for £50m.

While Chelsea’s summer has been concentrated on exits rather than high-priced arrivals.

PSG, on the other hand, might have to dip into their vast wealth to bring in some attackers after losing Lionel Messi, while Kylian Mbappe and Neymar could also leave before the end of the summer.
