LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)-Manchester United management is apparently prepared to spend whooping amount on the trio of Victor Osimhen, Kim Min-jae, and Khvicha Kvaratskhelia in the summer transfer season.
Osimhen, Kim, and Kvaratskhelia are at the top of United’s list of players they are hoping to sign in the upcoming transfer market, according to Italian outlet Ilnapolista.
