Napoli open to swap deal involving Greenwood for Osimhen from Man United

As reported by La Repubblica citing Spazio Napoli, Napoli is willing to agree to a player-swap deal where Greenwood will be shifted to Napoli in exchange for Osimhen.

Manchester United want to sell Greenwood in the summer, even though the rape charges against him were dropped last year. The 26-year-old midfielder did well while on a loan at Spanish La Liga side Getafe and has been associated with Juventus, Lazio, and Napoli.

Manchester United may consider including Greenwood in a part-exchange deal for developing a keen interest in signing Osimhen, with Napoli’s Sporting Director Giovanni Manna believed to have a good impression of the youngster. The 25-year-old Nigerian striker is desperate to play for the premier league but no club appears ready to pay for his €130 million release fee.

For Napoli to agree to Osimhen’s switch to the Premier League, the Italian giants may have to desist from their rigid stand on the release clause. Getting an acceptable offer for Greenwood, a player they like, plus cash may be beneficial. This would add a talented player to Napoli’s roster and transfer cash to be used for other transfer business.

As reported by La Repubblica, the Red Evils may initiate a significant exchange with Aurelio De Laurentiis’ club. Below is the newspaper’s detailed analysis, translated from Italian to English using Google Translate.

“Napoli wouldn’t mind a technical counterpart to lower the “cash” and make a high-level capital gain. It’s no mystery that sporting director Giovanni Manna likes Mason Greenwood. The crystal-clear striker has relaunched himself at Getafe after the accusations of domestic violence and rape that had obviously slowed his rise at Old Trafford. Both Juventus and Lazio are following him: he represents an opportunity. United have decided not to continue with him despite the accusations having been withdrawn by his girlfriend (with whom he later got back together, the couple had a child) and the contract expiring in 2025 requires an immediate transfer. The English side’s moves will be closely monitored: it’s probably Osimhen’s last chance to perform in the Premier League.”
