Real Madrid is on the lookout for a striker to reinforce its squad for next season. Kylian Mbappé is one of the club’s top targets, but the English press is suggesting another possibility: Victor Osimhen.
Since January 1, when Mbappé is free to negotiate with any club, the rumors about his future have not stopped. The Frenchman remains Florentino Pérez’s dream, but Real Madrid does not want to pay any price.
In this context, the British website ‘Football Transfers‘ revealed divisions within the Real Madrid management. A part of the leaders would be in favor of recruiting Osimhen.
According to the media, Osimhen’s supporters believe that the Nigerian is a better option than Mbappé. He is younger (23), cheaper, and his playing style is more suited to Real Madrid. In addition, his salary demands would be more reasonable.
Osimhen is a powerful and fast striker, capable of scoring important goals. He has already scored 14 goals in 22 Serie A matches this season.
Real Madrid has not yet made a final decision. Mbappé’s response will be decisive, but the Spanish club could well turn to Osimhen if negotiations with the Frenchman fail.
It is still too early to say what will happen. Real Madrid is still waiting for a response from Mbappé, who should not take long to make a decision. If the Frenchman refuses to join the club, Real Madrid could well turn to Osimhen.
The Nigerian is a talented player who could bring a lot to the team. He is fast, powerful, and has a good scoring sense. He could be a good alternative to Mbappé.
