Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole thinks United should sign Napoli forward Victor Osimhen not Harry Kane this summer.

“It depends on what Manchester United are looking for,” Cole told King Casino Bonus. “No doubt they’ll have options but it depends on the fee as well. 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 so 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.”
