Osimhen never wanted to leave Napoli – Agent


Victor Osimhen’s agent Roberto Calenda has claimed his client never entertained any thought of leaving Napoli.

Osimhen signed a contract extension with the Partenopei on Saturday.

The new deal will see the Nigeria international remain at the Estadio Diego Armando Maradona until 2026.

The 24-year-old was linked with a move away from Napoli in the summer.

The Serie A champions also turned down a massive offer from Saudi Arabia for the forward.

Calenda said Osimhen’s main priority was to take Napoli to the top.

“I’ve heard that I didn’t want him to renew and that I’d rather take him elsewhere. It’s the usual blame game. It wasn’t true. I represent Victor and I want what’s best for him. We’ve both wanted a renewal since the summer,” Calenda told Ii Corriello Dello Sport

“Last summer, plenty of offers arrived, some monstrous ones, but De Laurentiis wanted to keep Victor and we made ourselves available. If we wanted to leave, we would have said so.
