Torres helped his side go on a fantastic run to the Champions League semi-finals this season and would ideally like to play in the competition again next season, which neither of the two sides in question can offer him.

That’s according to Italian publication repubblica.it, via Sport Witness , who claim Osimhen is an ‘alternative’ to Harry Kane and acquiring a new striker is the ‘first goal’ for Ten Hag. The details of the official bid have not been released, although it has been previously mentioned that Napoli value their striker at no less than €100m.

Edinson Cavani has been confirmed as one of the first departures from the club this summer upon the expiry of his contract, while the future of Anthony Martial also remains unclear. Either way, the Red Devils need a new striker to support Cristiano Ronaldo when it comes to scoring goals.

Ten Hag confirms Ronaldo in his plans

Ten Hag has confirmed that Cristiano Ronaldo is included in his plans for next season, following some uncertainty over the Portuguese international after a difficult campaign for the Red Devils in which the 37-year-old was one of few shining lights.

Ronaldo had contributed with 24 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions this season and was often Man Utd’s saviour throughout the season, but with no trophies and the failure to finish in the top four this season, doubts had been raised as to whether the forward would remain at Old Trafford beyond this campaign.

But the Dutchman put all the speculation to rest in his first press conference as Man Utd manager on Monday, after being asked if he wants the five-time Ballon d’Or winner to stay: “Of course!”. Ten Hag was then asked what Ronaldo brings, to which he responded “goals”, as relayed by the Manchester Evening News .
