Impending Napoli chaos could boost Manchester United's pursuit of two players

Napoli won their first Scudetto for 33 years this season and they have beaten all 19 Serie A rivals at least once along the way.

It has been a spectacular campaign for a football-obsessed city which yearned for league title success again, but appropriately for a club that’s historically never been short of drama, it looks like manager Luciano Spalletti is set for an abrupt exit.

Spalletti has been the master tactician behind Napoli’s emphatic league triumph. He’s been able to get the best out of now-established talents like Victor Osimhen and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia and yet his time in Naples seems to be drawing to an end.

The manager’s contract at Napoli is set to expire at the end of this season and although the club have the option to extend it by a further two years, Spalletti is said to want a new deal with improved terms to reflect his achievement.

Spalletti is just the sixth-highest-paid coach in Serie A, but the biggest problem is, reports suggest he feels disrespected due to a lack of communication over his future, suggesting there is thunder coming after the sunshine in Naples.

The vultures from the Premier League are monitoring the situation and Manchester United will be ready to swoop for Osimhen. The striker has 28 goals this season and he’s on Erik ten Hag’s transfer shortlist behind priority target Harry Kane.

Although believed to be happy at Napoli, Osimhen previously admitted he would be receptive to offers from the Premier League and his willingness to swap Italy for England may increase should Spalletti leave the club.
