Napoli president confirms release clause in Osimhen’s contract


Napoli president, Aurelio de Laurentiis, has confirmed there is a release clause in Victor Osimhen’s contract.

Osimhen put to pen paper on a new deal last December.

The contract reportedly include a €120m- €130m release clause.

De Laurentiis also hinted that the Nigeria international could make a big money move from the reigning Serie A champions this summer

“Some players stay for many years, others are wanted by PSG, Arsenal, Man City, Chelsea,” De Laurentiis was quoted by transfer expert, Fabrizio Romano.

“It’s difficult to keep players when they are wanted by rich clubs”.

“I can confirm there’s a release clause, very high one”.

Osimhen recently said he know where he will be playing his football next season.

The 25-year-old has been linked with the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Arsenal.

The forward scored a hat-trick in Napoli’s 6-1 win against Sassuolo on Wednesday night.
