Thierry Henry sends message to Man Utd over Harry Kane & Victor Osimhen

Thierry Henry sends message to Man Utd over Harry Kane & Victor Osimhen

Thierry Henry, a revered figure at Arsenal, thinks that Manchester United should prioritize signing Harry Kane over Victor Osimhen, considering that both strikers have been strongly linked to the club.

At present, Harry Kane and Victor Osimhen are considered to be among the top-performing strikers in the world. Kane has been in excellent form for Tottenham, and his talent is well-established.

Meanwhile, Osimhen has enjoyed a breakout season with Napoli, having scored 23 goals and provided five assists in just 28 games.

His contributions have been instrumental in helping Napoli establish an 18-point lead at the top of Serie A.

Additionally, Napoli has reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in their history, and Osimhen’s impressive brace in their recent win against Frankfurt (3-0) helped secure a 5-0 aggregate victory.

There has been a lot of talk about both Kane and Osimhen potentially making high-value transfers this summer, and Manchester United has been identified as a possible destination for both players.

Chelsea has also been linked with Osimhen. As Erik ten Hag’s tactics are being discussed, there is much speculation and debate about which of these players would be better suited to his approach. Thierry Henry has now shared his views on the matter.

“Personally, if I’m Man United I go Kane because he knows the Premier League,” the legendary forward told CBS Sports.

“Looking at Kane, this guy doesn’t need to adapt to anything. He has a way of dropping deep that would allow Marcus Rashford to run in behind.

“Kane can play anywhere, he can adapt to any team – well except Arsenal!

“That doesn’t mean Osimhen is not a good player, it has nothing to do with that. I think he’s going to go wherever he wants to go. He can adapt to a lot of sides and any league.

“When you play for a team like Napoli, everything comes to him. But it’s a different ball game when you play in a front three. Balls are not always going to you at big club with three big guys up top.

“That’s what I want to see: How he reacts when he’s not the only focal point. But other than that he has everything. He can hold the ball up well, he can run into the channel, he can finish well with his head, with his foot.”

Despite being Tottenham’s top scorer of all time, Harry Kane has not won any major trophies with the club, and the possibility of doing so in the near future appears remote.

With only one year remaining on his contract, Kane may consider moving to a new team in search of the silverware he desires.
