Super Eagles forward Victor Osimhen says his love for Wayne Rooney is the reason he will choose playing for Manchester United ahead of other European clubs jostling for his signature .
Osimhen surprised everyone after Napoli’s 3-0 victory over Eintracht Frankfurt in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 when he told NBC Sports, “I’ve been following Manchester United since I was a child. I started to fall in love with the club because of Wayne Rooney. I am a big fan of Rooney.
” Playing at Manchester United will be a great pleasure for me. It would make my childhood dream come true. If the opportunity arises, i will definitely take advantage of it . I will leave everything in the hands of God for now.”
The former Lille FC forward also explained that he is having an incredible moment in Italy, adding that, he has no doubt that Napoli would win Serie A this season.
“At the beginning of the season, only few people believed in the team, but it is very clear to many fans and pundits now that we have everything to become champions. I know it is very difficult, but our team has potentials” he added.
So far, Osimhen has scored twenty four goals in all competitions this season, nineteen of them in Serie A.
Chelsea, Paris Saint German and Arsenal are some of the Clubs that have shown interest in signing the Napoli striker in the summer.
