Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has issued a hands-off warning to Chelsea and Manchester United in their pursuit of Victor Osimhen.
The 73-year-old issued a swift one-word response to transfer speculation linking the Nigeria striker away from the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.
Osimhen spearheaded Napoli to their first Serie A title in 33 years after banging in 22 goals in 27 top-flight matches.
And it was his strike in the 1-1 away draw at Udinese midweek that secured the club’s third Scudetto in their history.
His stunning form has led to rumours of a potential £150million summer departure, with United claimed to have identified him as an alternative to Harry Kane.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are said to have the ex-Lille star on their radar, with reports stating Christian Pulisic could be used in any deal.
But De Laurentiis has declared the 24-year-old is going nowhere in an interview with Rai Sport show ‘Cinque Minuti‘.
Asked whether the former Wolfsburg forward could move on, he stated: “Sell Osimhen this summer? Never.”

Osihmen had hinted at a possible switch to England in March after admitting it his ‘dream’ to play in the Premier League.
And he only fuelled the transfer talk after expressing his love for Blues legend Didier Drogba, who he is regular contact with.
He was immediately quizzed on his future by Sky Sport Italia after winning his first piece of silverware.
The 24-cap international remarked: “I’m thrilled with this victory.
“I’m happy for me, for the team and for the fans.
“I can’t wait to come back in Naples to embrace our fans, even though tonight I already felt the warmth of the people. I’m happy for all the Neapolitans.”
He added: “I scored the Scudetto goal, it’s true, but anyone else could have scored it.
“I feel like a leader and I never give up. Future? Now I want to enjoy this historic moment, this is not the time to think about my future.”
