That is according to Sky Sport Italia, which reports that Napoli have made enquiries to United about the possibility of signing Greenwood.

The report states that Napoli are open to selling Osimhen to Man Utd for a large transfer fee, with Greenwood moving to Napoli as part of the transfer deal.

Napoli are desperate to sell Osimhen this summer, with most of their transfer market held up until they can move him on.

Osimhen was one of the most wanted men in Europe last year but a difficult 2023-24 season and an astronomical €120 million asking price - which is his release clause - has scared off clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and perhaps even PSG.

United are in the market for a top striker this summer, and are also interested in Bologna striker Joshua Zirkzee.

The Red Devils have put Greenwood up for sale, and there is strong interest from Serie A as both Juventus and Lazio have also held preliminary talks about the exiled winger.

Osimhen to leave Napoli

Osimhen has decided to leave Napoli this summer, and the Italian club have also agreed to sell to fund new manager Antonio Conte’s transfer campaign.

The 25-year-old saw his relationship with Napoli sour this last season, following the TikTok scandal in which the club’s own social media team mocked his penalty miss with Bologna.

Osimhen had a largely difficult season on the pitch, while Napoli endured a disastrous defence of the Scudetto they won in the 2022-23 season as they finished 10th in Serie A.

The Nigerian had been a key player in the Scudetto campaign, scoring 26 league goals in 32 games.
