While Victor Osimhen could also ask for a move away from the club in the summer after his upturn of form this season.

Is Victor Osimhen a good striker option for Manchester United?

Manchester United are set for a massive rebuild in the summer, with new manager Erik ten Hag spearheading the rebuild. A lot of stars are set to leave the Old Trafford in the summer. Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani is set to leave the club on a free transfer. While star Cristiano Ronaldo’s future is still a massive question mark. After the red devils missed out on Champions League qualification.

There is also no confirmation on the future of on-loan striker Anthony Martial. Interim manager Ralf Rangnick has already confirmed that the club need to sign at least two new strikers in the summer transfer window. The red devils have been linked with Inter Milan star Lautaro Martínez in recent weeks. While Benfica striker Darwin Núñez is also linked with the club. The Uruguayan striker is widely expected to leave the Portuguese club in the summer.

Victor Osimhen would really tick a lot of boxes for the red devils. The striker would provide a lot of pace on the counterattacks. While his pace would also be an asset with runs in behind the opposition backline. But the decision for the next club striker still needs to be approved by new manager Erik ten Hag.
