Ancelotti Wants Osimhen At Real Madrid

Ancelotti Wants Osimhen At Real Madrid

Carlo Ancelotti has reportedly pleaded with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez to sign Super Eagles and Napoli striker Victor Osimhen in January.

Ancelotti has urged the LaLiga giants to also go for AC Milan Portuguese forward Rafael Leao.

The legendary Italian coach has been wanting to bolster his attack since returning to the Bernabeu last year and became frustrated after failing to land Kylian Mbappe this summer.

Karim Benzema’s current injury woes have only amplified the issue that Madrid need to bring in attacking reinforcements.

And according to Spanish media outfit, Sport, Ancelotti has set his sights on Leao and Osimhen as priority buys in January.

Osimhen has been impressive in front of goal for Napoli this season, scoring nine goals in 13 games in all competitions.

His impressive scoring form has helped send Napoli to the top of Serie A, where they are on a 14-game unbeaten streak.

Leao has become one of Europe’s hottest properties at AC Milan and is wanted by Europe’s biggest clubs, with Chelsea and Manchester City ready to battle it out for the Portuguese star.

He was named Serie A MVP for 2021-22 and has scored six goals and nine assists in just 17 appearances so in both the Serie A and Champions League.

Despite inconsistency in his fitness this term, Benzema has still managed six goals and an assist in 11 games.

However, his stop-start campaign so far has made it difficult for him to replicate the form he managed last season which helped Madrid win LaLiga and Champions League.

    This is the kind of news we want to be hearing. Osimhen is world class.

    Now this is what I call leveling up. See, dont play in the premier league has so much benefits. Look at Moffie, Lookman and Osimhen. Osimhen soon to be getting trophies

    But idk if this is true when Ancelotti is going to retire at the end of this season

  • Osimhen will stay and win the scuddeto for Napoli,that I am 100 percent sure of……But it’s a very good thing for Madrid to be looking at osimhen and that shows he is doing something right……The interest from Madrid will also boost his confidence to do more for Napoli to win the scuddeto and possibly the champions league…..I see Top teams romancing with our young talents in not too distant future…… Osimhen,Moffi,Lookman,Onyedika,Yusuf alhassan, Godwin saviour,Onuachu,and Simon are most likely moving to higher clubs next season……watch out and see.

      Young talents that could not qualify for the 2022 Qatar World Cup. Rest Oga. The only thing our young Nigerian players will be romancing is their couch as they watch Ghana make a fool of themselves in Qatar.
      Heaven help Nigerian football…..

        Oga you should rest….so, because they didn’t qualify for world cup now they should die. You people should stop the nonsense and get out

    Yes yes yes but for next season not January .

  • That’s good news, Osimhen need to leave Napoli because Napoli players don’t look for him as their #9 like other teams and that is why Osimhen always end up running backward to the midfield to fight for ball which is why he gets injured easily. If he goes to real madrid or other top clubsides the whole World will stand still for him because he is truely a good striker

    Its only in Nigeria a player can be wanted by Real Madrud and the Ministry of Sports will prefer a home-based to replace him in the Super Eagles line up. This country is sick and mired in mediocrity.
