Who will be the striker who will enter Old Trafford (Manchester United’s home stadium) this summer?

Manchester United’s legendary center back Jaap Stam advised that Harry Kane (Tottenham Hotspur) would have fewer variables than Victor Osimen (Napoli).

British media토토사이트 ‘Daily Mail’ reported on the 17th (Korean time) that ‘Man United warned of potential difficulties in the Premier League if they sign Osimen’.

Both Osimen and Kane are undoubtedly great strikers, but in Stam’s view, Premier League experience cannot be ignored.

Osimen is a Nigerian striker who uses African elasticity and speed to disrupt the defense. George Weah broke the African Serie A record for most goals scored.

England captain Kane is an all-around striker who can play as a number 9 as well as a number 10 playmaker. He ranks second in the Premier League’s individual career goalscoring list.

“Kane knows the Premier League well. He proved himself at Tottenham. He is one of the best goalscorers in the world. We know his level of play, what can be expected of him and what he can show. So if we bring in Kane, it would be a very good deal,” Kane asserted that there was little chance of failure.

Osimen is a question mark.

Stam was concerned, “Osimen is a different type. He needs to get used to the Premier League first. He might adapt quickly, but he might struggle.”

Stam advised Manchester United manager Eric Tenhagh to select a striker who fits his philosophy.

Stam raised his voice, “Do you want a strong No. 9 style target man? Or do you want a creative player? Anyway, you need a No. 9 striker to score goals.”

Both Osimen and Kane are expected to cost over £100 million (approximately 160 billion won). As for Osimen, he has already stated that the Premier League is his dream. Recruitment is not expected to be difficult if the money is ready. But Kane is a Tottenham one-club man. Difficult negotiations are expected as Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy seems to be trying to keep Kane as much as possible.
