Selling Osimhen more emotional than financial – Napoli President, De Laurentiis

Osimhen’s agent admits Super Eagles striker could leave Napoli

According to Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis, selling the team’s star striker Victor Osimhen would be a decision driven more by emotions than finances.

Osimhen may depart the club this summer, with a reported release clause of €120-130m in his contract signed last December.

Big clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal, and Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly interested in the Nigerian forward.

De Laurentiis expressed how challenging it would be to see Osimhen leave the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium after his impressive four seasons with the team.

“Osimhen has a release clause. That’s a lot of money. Money is Napoli’s latest problem,” De Laurentiis said at the FT’s Football Business Summit:

“We have always made good purchases and will continue to do so in the future.

“The problem is only sentimental, because every time a player leaves it’s like saying goodbye to a child, but at the same time you’re happy even when he achieves success elsewhere.”
