Man United and Chelsea target Victor Osimhen says he ‘doesn’t mind’ whether he stays at Napoli or not this summer, as Nigerian striker insists: ‘The president decides and I will just go with the flow’
- Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen has been a key player for Napoli this season
- He has scored 26 goals this season as they secured a first Scudetto in 33 years
- The 24-year-old has now said he ‘doesn’t mind’ whether he stays or not
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen has claimed he ‘doesn’t mind’ whether he stays at the club or not this summer.
The Nigerian striker, who has scored 31 goals this season and helped Luciano Spalletti’s side to the Serie A title, said the decision would be made by club president Aurelio De Laurentiis while he would ‘just go with the flow.’
Manchester United have been heavily linked with Osimhen, who is valued at around £130 million, with Real Madrid also likely to be interested in the striker after losing Karim Benzema. Chelsea are also keen as they look to solve their issues up front.
He ended his Napoli season with a goal in their final game against Sampdoria on Sunday, with many speculating it could be his final appearance for the club.
The 24-year-old remained open about his future, though.

After being awarded the Capocannoniere for scoring the most Serie A goals this season, he told DAZN: ‘I don’t know, the President has to decide that.
‘I love the people of Napoli, they have shown me so much love. For me, I don’t mind, the president decides and I will just go with the flow.’
‘I appreciate the Neapolitans a lot, they deserve this and hopefully we’ll have many more trophies to come.’
On his top scorer award, Osimhen added: ‘It’s amazing feeling for me, I won the Scudetto, which is the most important thing in my career so far.
‘I am grateful to God for this season, for my teammates, my family, for the Neapolitans and they deserve all of this,’
‘This season has been brilliant for me, my teammates and the Neapolitans. I think I’ve done so well this season and deserve every good thing I’ve got, but I feel motivated to do even more next season.’
Osimhen says club president Aurelio De Laurentiis will decide his future and the 24-year-old will ‘go with the flow’
Spalletti will leave Napoli after guiding them to their first Scudetto in over three decades, and the striker paid tribute to the manager before looking ahead to what the club could achieve next season.
He continued: ‘A great coach, a great man, he deserves this. He’s been phenomenon, he is the architect of a great season, his staff too have done so well.
‘I wish him all the very best in life and hope he enjoys the time with his family. He deserves all this, coach of the year.
‘Everything is possible. Just like when we started the season, lots of people didn’t believe in Napoli. If the [resident says we can win it, I believe it, everything is possible.’
