Premier League legend Thierry Henry believes that Harry Kane would be a better fit for Manchester United as opposed to in-demand striker Victor Osimhen.

The Nigerian forward is one of the most sought after strikers in Europe at the moment and is believed to be a top target for the Red Devils.

However, the Tottenham talisman has also been linked with the English giants in the last couple of weeks and is a move that United should pursue according to Henry. The Arsenal legend believes that Kane’s Premier League experience is an advantage over the African star who currently plies his trade with Napoli in Serie A.

“Because of the Premier League and he knows the Premier League, if I’m Man United I go Kane,” Henry said on CBS Sports, as per Daily Mail.

“That doesn’t mean Osimhen is not a good player or whatever, it has nothing to do with that. I think Osimhen can adapt in any league.

“But if I’m Man United, I would look at [it like] ok, this guy doesn’t need to adapt to anything, he has a way of dropping and can allow Marcus Rashford to run in behind him when he drops.

“Kane can play anywhere also by the way.”
