Why Osimhen did not join Manchester United
Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano during Monday's Debrief podcast for Caughtoffside, reveals why the Red Devils missed out on signing the Nigerian international.
“With the takeover, they may have had the chance to go for superstar players, there were links with players like Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen, but it wasn't possible with their financial situation,” he said.”This could have been an issue, links for that kind of player couldn't materialize, and they had to go with a different strategy.”
Romano also confirmed that he does not have any news about some players rejecting a move to Erik ten Hag's side.
“I don't have any news on the players rejecting United because of the takeover, it's something normal in football,” he added.
