Osimhen Perfect For Manchester United — Mikel

Osimhen Perfect For Manchester United — Mikel

Former Chelsea midfileder, John Mikel Obi believes Victor Osimhen would make the grade at Manchester United.

Osimhen is a subject of interest from Manchester United , Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain.

There are fears the Nigeria international could flop in the Premier League but Mikel insists his compatriot will flourish at the Old Trafford should he make the switch.

“When you look at Victor Osimhen, I mean, he is doing really well for Napoli. He is playing very well. He is going to be in the market in the summer,” Mikel said in an interview with DubaiEye.


“I think Man United are going to go for him definitely. He is doing well for me. I think Victor scores goals. That is what he does. He isn’t very technically good but he will get you goals for sure.”

He added: “I think he would be the perfect fit for them [Man Utd]. He would be the finished article for this United team. They play some really good football now. They’re back playing the way United should play. Again, they’re missing that lethal striker. If they could be able to go for him [Victor], if they could be able to get him, he would be the icing on the cake for them.”

Osimhen has scored 25 goals in 29 apperancea across all competitions for Napoli this season.

    • @Sportradio88.0 fm in your right mind you Think a player with Victor Osimhen current status in World Football will be kept on the bench?. You no sabi nada mehn.. let me inform you how it goes in club negotiations process when you reach the heights Osimhen currently has the player negotiates the terms he wants when a club approachs him and clubs will have to put terms like he will be thier main man If he signs for them. Look bro. Osimhen has reached a height that no Nigerian player before him has in World Football to date. So this matter don pass because he is Nigerian he will be benched rubbish bro. Osimhen has surpassed the heights of any Nigerian player before him. That is Facts. This kind of player will demand playing time or the club can look elsewhere its thier loss. Gettrit

      Any coach who benches a 100 million pound player would be fired.

    How is a World class player like Osimhen to go to Newcastle? Osimhen wanted by World class clubs like Man. Uinted, Arsenal, Chelsea,PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern Munchen; I think the best team Osimhen must join is Man. United or Arsenal.
