Napoli President Aurelio de Laurentiis’s Email to Al Hilal for Osimhen’s Transfer Revealed
In a surprising revelation, French sports newspaper L’Équipe has uncovered the final email sent by Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis to Al Hilal regarding the potential transfer of Victor Osimhen. The email, filled with a hint of sarcasm, highlights the staggering price tag of €200m for the Nigerian footballer’s feet alone.
De Laurentiis’s message to Al Hilal reads, “For a mere €200m, you have the opportunity to purchase Victor’s feet. Perhaps. However, considering your potential offer of €500m next year, we might contemplate your bid. But again, this is only a possibility.”
The email, laced with a touch of humor, showcases De Laurentiis’s firm stance on Osimhen’s valuation and emphasizes the player’s worth to Napoli. The Italian club’s president seemingly implies that the Nigerian forward’s abilities are priceless and should be treated as such.
Osimhen, who joined Napoli in the summer of 2020 from French club Lille, has quickly established himself as a key player in the Serie A side’s attack. With his exceptional pace, clinical finishing, and impressive work rate, the 22-year-old has already made a significant impact on the pitch.
The reported email sheds light on the negotiating tactics employed by De Laurentiis, who appears to be holding out for a substantial transfer fee for Osimhen. As one of the most sought-after young talents in European football, it is no surprise that his services come at such a high cost.
The revelation of this email adds another layer of intrigue to the ongoing transfer saga surrounding Victor Osimhen. It not only showcases the strong stance of Napoli’s president but also raises questions about the potential future bidding war for the Nigerian star.
