Andy Cole urges Man United to sign Osimhen over Harry Kane
Being in the market for another striker, Manchester United has long been linked with a move for England skipper Harry Kane. However, the Red Devils icon believes Victor Osimhen is a better option.
Victor Osimhen has been essential to Napoli's Serie A lead as well as their pursuit of the Champions League as he scored 25 goals this season. Meanwhile, Harry Kane has netted 23 goals for the Spurs becoming Tottenham and England's all-time leading scorer. With Man United being linked to both players, Andy Cole insists the Red Devils must learn from Man City's pursuit of Erling Haaland and sign the Nigerian striker.

Harry Kane is 30 years old next season and Victor Osimhen is currently 24 years old and he's already done a lot at his age too. Italian football is difficult but there will be no doubts that he can adapt to the Premier League. If Manchester United want to pay £100m for a 24-year-old or a 30-year-old, you have to look at it in the long term. The only value Manchester United can get from Kane is if he can win them the Premier League. Meanwhile, Osimhen is near the same age as Erling Haaland and look what he's doing at the moment. If Haaland stays at Manchester City for another four years, he'll still be worth £100m or more, so it depends on what Manchester United are looking for.
“Unfortunately in football, everyone wants instant success, but that does not guarantee a bright future for the club. Look at Manchester City, they did not have instant success and look at them now. The players Pep Guardiola brought in were always young and he could still sell them for a decent price if he needed to. That's what I think Manchester United should do because they have been caught too many times bringing in players for ridiculous fees and on ridiculous wages who have run down their contracts, I don't think they can afford to be caught in that position again.”
