PSG and Bayern Munich interested in a particular Napoli player
The history between German giants Bayern Munich and French behemoths PSG might grow even larger this summer according to the latest reports considering both organizations might be interested in signing the same player next July.
After meeting in the group stage of the 2018 Champions League, then in the final of the 2020 edition of the competition, the quarter-finals of the 2021 season, and one last time earlier in 2023 in the round of 16, FCB and PSG seem poised to fight each other in the summer transfer market.
One player that might put the two giants on a collision course is Napoli forward Victor Osimhen, as we already reported a few days ago.
New information obtained by Sport 1 and revealed on Tuesday confirmed the interest of the Nigeria international in a potential "return" to the German Bundesliga, where he played at Wolfsburg between 2017 and 2019.
The German media outlet wrote that Osimhen "dreams of playing in the Premier League" although it also revealed that the African forward is not "indifferent" to a possible return to Germany. He is, of course, being tracked by Bayern Munich.
The problem for Bayern, though, might be Napoli's valuation of the player, quoted at more than €100m while the German side don't want to pay more than that amount.
PSG are seemingly tracking the forward too but it is unclear whether or not they will submit a final bid.
While not reporting PSG's interest in Osimhen Sky Sport Germany published an interesting tweet on Tuesday revealing the price Napoli has quoted their player in the event Bayern Munich want to sign him.
PSG and their sporting director Luis Campos would love to land a high-caliber forward such as Victor Osimhen, who is reportedly "at the top of his shortlist" ahead of next summer. It might take a bit of an effort, a €130m one if we're precise and according to Sky Sport, to purchase him from Napoli.
There might be a bidding war starting at that figure, or Napoli might straight discard Bayern Munich as a potential purchaser. Whatever the case, it feels like this will be another summer soap opera.
