Euro Paper Talk: Man Utd to seal unbelievable €197m double deal with world-class duo wooed by Ten Hag; Liverpool to agree deal with Bayern Munich for prized star

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis poses with Victor Osimhen as they arrive at the Foreign Press Association Rome

Manchester United have belief that an incredible £173m double raid on Napoli can be agreed, Liverpool are closing on a deal to sign a Bayern Munich midfielder, while Tuesday’s Euro Paper Talk claims West Ham are making moves to sign Italy’s new golden boy.


Manchester United’s prospects of prising two star men away from Napoli are growing, amid claims the Serie A giants are willing to sell.

The Red Devils are plotting another heavy summer of investment to take Erik ten Hag’s side to the next level. Indeed, they are looking for three top-drawer signings that can enable the side to compete for the Premier League title and the Champions League.

And reports in Italy claim they could be about to seal an important breakthrough for the first two signings.

First up, Ten Hag wants a new striker with Victor Osimhen a clear target for United.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport claims the Nigerian will be allowed to leave – but at a price.

Indeed, with Chelsea and PSG also among his suitors, Napoli are putting a price of a staggering £131.7m (€150m) on his head.

United, though, are seemingly willing to meet the price with the player too also wooed by the chance to play for United and Ten Hag.

Those hopes are gaining further traction amid cliams Napoli have already identified Osimhen’s replacement.

And according to Calciomercato, they are hot on the trail of Union Saint-Gilloise striker Victor Boniface.

Also Nigerian, Boniface has 14 goals and eight assists from 39 appearances this season. The Belgian side will likely command a £21.2m (€25m) fee for the 22-year-old.

Kim Min-jae ready to follow Osimhen to Man Utd

Osimhen won’t be the only Napoli player to move to Manchester United this summer either.

And according to Get Football News Italy, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis is also willing to cash in on Kim Min-jae this summer.

The South Korean has proved a brilliant signing since replacing Kalidou Koulibaly in the heart of the defence.

And with a £41.3m (€47m) exit clause that kicks in this summer, Gli Azzurri face a battle to keep him.

There has been talk that Napoli could look to extend Kim’s deal at Napoli and extend his exit clause.

However, De Laurentiis is seemingly now willing to take the money feeling his peak valuation will come this summer.

And the two signings combined will net the Serie A champions-elect a huge £173.1m (€197m) windfall which will safeguard their future for years.

United are likely to have around £250m to spend this summer and if true, a large portion of that looks likely to be heading to Napoli.

However, Ten Hag can boost his spending power by cashing in on a number of stars. And the United boss will reportedly allow both Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof to move on if he can secure a deal for Kim.
