Napoli President, Aurelio de Laurentiis, has made it clear that the club does not need to sell Victor Osimhen.
His comments come amid reports Manchester United are planning a summer bid for the forward.
Osimhen has played a starring role in Napoli’s bid to secure a first league title since 1990, with Luciano Spalletti’s side currently 13 points clear of second placed Inter Milan.
The Nigerian forward leads the Serie A goalscoring charts, having scored 16 goals in 17 appearences in the league this season.
Osimhen’s displays have seen the 24-year-old reportedly emerge as Manchester United’s top transfer target this summer, with the Red Devils claimed to be preparing a £107million offer.
De Laurentiis told German newspaper Bild that he does not intend to sell the Napoli talisman.
‘I can tell you that Osimhen is not for sale,’ De Laurentiis said.
‘Our players are in demand, but I don’t have to sell anyone.
‘We don’t have any debts’.
Osimhen joined Napoli from Lille in 2020 for £62.4m and has scored 45 goals in 83 matches.
His contract expires in 2025 and talks over a new deal are thought to not have taken place yet.
