Osimhen and Napoli reach a stalemate in their contract negotiations, fanning rumors

Napoli’s contract negotiations with Victor Osimhen have reached a stalemate, leaving the door open for either Manchester United or Chelsea to sign the striker.

Reports from Corriere dello Sport indicate that Osimhen and Napoli have not reached an agreement, primarily due to a disagreement over his release clause. Napoli wants to increase the clause to £173 million ($222m), while Osimhen prefers it to remain at £100m ($128m).

Osimhen’s current contract with Napoli expires in 2025, and rumors suggest that Napoli’s desire for a higher release clause is related to a sell-on fee included in the £70m ($90m) deal when they signed him from Lille. If Osimhen were to move this summer, Lille would receive a significant fee.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have shown interest in signing the striker, although Napoli’s president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, remains confident that Osimhen will stay at the club.
