But there are some reports that suggest that the italian club has reduced their demand in order to find the perfect and best deal for the player.

According to some reports from Italy, It is been confirm that Osimhen is ready to move on and The Red Devils are ready to offer Rasmus Hojlund in exchange and some money to make the move happen. The Red Devils are ready to pay any amount to buy the striker as they need a striker that they can relay on.
