And while Mourinho, 60, says he would buy Osimhen if he had the cash, the Portuguese coach warned must stop diving if he wants to move to the Premier League in the longer term.

“He’s of the identical level as Drogba, but Didier didn’t dive. If Victor changes, then OK. I’d buy him if I used to be at a club with numerous money,” Mourinho told reporters, as quoted by The Sun.

“Nonetheless, if he does go to England someday, he needs to alter, because in Italy they put up with this type of behaviour, whereas within the Premier League, they’d come down hard on him.”
