Mane out, Osimhen in: Bayern Munich ready to splash the cash to sign Super Eagles star

Bayern Munich are reportedly ready to bid at least €120 million for Napoli’s striker Victor Osimhen, who they see as a better replacement for Robert Lewandowski than Sadio Mane.

Osimhen, who has scored 21 goals in 24 Serie A matches and five goals in six Champions League games this season, has caught the attention of several top European clubs, including Manchester United.

Bayern Munich, however, appears to be even keener on the race for Osimhen’s signature.

The German champions are reportedly willing to make a massive offer to convince Napoli to sell their prized asset.

Bayern Munich have identified Osimhen as the ideal replacement for Robert Lewandowski, who left for Barcelona last summer.

Bayern’s interest in Osimhen is partly due to the failure of the Sadio Mane transfer last year.

The Senegalese forward was brought in from Liverpool to replace Lewandowski, but he failed to live up to expectations and never integrated into the team’s tactics.

Moreover, Mane was involved in a locker-room brawl with Leroy Sané after Bayern’s Champions League knockout against Manchester City, which resulted in a suspension and a hefty fine.

The Bavarians see Osimhen as the perfect offensive end for their game, as they need an elite striker to lead the line.

However, despite the interest from Bayern Munich and Manchester United, Napoli are determined to keep hold of their star striker.

The Serie A leaders hope to convince Osimhen to stay with an ambitious project and a contractual adjustment.

Napoli sporting director Giuntoli has already identified a possible successor for Osimhen, but the club’s priority is to retain the Nigerian’s services for the long term.

It remains to be seen whether Bayern Munich’s massive offer will be enough to persuade Napoli to part ways with their prized asset.
