Napoli paid Lille €68million to sign Victor Osimhen in July 2020, the club president Olivier Letang has confirmed.
Letang who replaced Gerard Lopez as CEO last December, dismissed reports that the Ligue 1 side collected €81m for Osimhen.
The Super Eagles striker joined Napoli on a five-year contract after his outstanding debut season in the French top-flight.
Letang, in response to Lopez who claimed Osimhen was sold for €71.3m with €10m bonuses, said: “Initially everyone thinks that the sale of Osimhen is 81 million euros.
“The sale of Osimhen on the transfer agreement is 68 million euros. Four players arrived from Naples.
“The valuation of these four players, in aggregate, is according to the specialized players a maximum of 500,000 euros. These four players were bought for twenty million euros.”
The 48-year-old added that no agent was paid by Lille to complete Osimhen’s departure to the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
“Not a single intermediary was paid. An agent was indeed appointed on July 27, 2020 and the transfer contract was signed on July 27, 2020. This is also factual so we must stop lying and manipulating,” Letang said.
Osimhen has settled in well in Naples following the success of the move, and he scored 10 goals in 30 matches for the Parthenopeans across all competitions last season.
