Watch Man Utd target Osimhen net STUNNER vs Roma to send Napoli 13 points clear

MANCHESTER UNITED target Victor Osimhen wellied in a stunner to down Jose Mourinho’s Roma.

And his super-strike also helped Napoli move 13 points clear in the Serie A title race.

Osimhen’s 14th league goal of the campaign came just 17 minutes into Sunday’s crunch match at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.

The Nigeria international showed excellent technique to control a fabulous cross from partner-in-crime Khvicha Kvaratskhelia.

Osimhen then took another touch of the ball to line up a shot.

And keeping it in the air, Osimhen then lashed the ball home into the roof of the net at a seemingly-impossible angle.

It was a truly sumptuous goal from Europe’s in-form striker.

And it showed just why Man Utd are hoping to land him in a potential club record move next summer.

There were fears for Napoli’s win later in the game when Stephan El Shaarawy fired home a 75th minute equaliser for Roma.

However, Giovanni Simeone – son of Atletico Madrid boss Diego – came off the bench to fire in an 86th minute winner for the hosts.

The victory sent Napoli flying up to 53 points – 13 more than second-place Inter Milan.

And it now means the most exciting race left in Serie A is for the remaining three Champions League spots.

Inter lead the way on 40 points, just two ahead of Lazio, Atalanta and AC Milan, and three ahead of Roma.

Meanwhile, Napoli will look to extend their winning run with three favourable fixtures coming up against Spezia, Cremonense and Sassuolo.

The Italians then take on Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of their Champions League last 16 tie.

And Napoli fans will be dreaming of going even further in Europe after making the knockout stage for the first time in three years.
