Thierry Henry, a former Arsenal player, believes that Harry Kane should be prioritized over Victor Osimhen for Manchester United, despite the fact that both players have been connected to the team. Osimhen has contributed significantly this season, scoring 23 goals and dishing out five assists in 28 games for Napoli, helping them to secure a comfortable lead in Serie A despite the fact that Kane is already acknowledged as a brilliant striker.
Osimhen scored twice as Napoli defeated Frankfurt 3-0 on Wednesday to go to the quarterfinals of the Champions League for the first time in club history. This result gave Napoli a 5-0 overall triumph. This summer, it is predicted that both Kane and Osimhen would go for significant sums of money, with Manchester United being their most likely destination. Osimhen, though, has ties to Chelsea as well.
Erik ten Hag’s preferred striker has been the subject of much debate and conjecture, and Thierry Henry has voiced his opinion on the subject. The former Arsenal player claimed that because Kane is already familiar with the Premier League, he would choose Kane if he were Manchester United. Henry thinks that Kane can adapt to any team other than Arsenal and that his ability to drop deep would complement Marcus Rashford’s runs in behind. Osimhen is a great player who can adapt to many teams and leagues, and Henry recognized that his final destination will probably depend on his preferences.
“Everything comes to him when you play for a side like Napoli,” a player said. When you play in a front three, however, it’s a very other game. With the big club with the three big guys up top, balls don’t always come to you.
I’m interested in seeing how he responds when there are other focal points besides him. He has everything else, though. He can run into the channel, hold the ball up well, and finish well with his head or foot.
Kane is Tottenham’s all-time leading scorer, but he has yet to bring home a trophy. With just one year left on his contract, he might consider leaving Tottenham.
