Carlo Ancelotti, manager of Real Madrid, denied reports that the club would be acquiring Victor Osimhen from Napoli but praised the player as “one of the best in Europe.”
Osimhen captained the Serie A club to its first championship in 33 years.
With an unprecedented 26 goals, he became the first African to win the league’s best goalscorer honor.
He attracted interest from Madrid, PSG, Chelsea, and Manchester United due to his outstanding performance.
According to Fussball, Ancelotti put an end to the rumors once and for all by saying, “Osimhen is one of the best strikers in Europe, but to be honest, we never thought of him.”
