Manchester United has faced difficulties in scoring goals across various competitions this season, leading them to consider adding a new striker to their roster at the end of the current season.

Both Osimhen and Kane have displayed remarkable performances for their respective clubs, and the decision-makers at Manchester United are eager to secure the services of one of these exceptional players.

The Super Eagles striker has registered 23 goals this term for Napoli and has also won the Serie A title. Kane, on the other hand, has netted 27 Premier League goals for Tottenham.

According to the reports on Pulse and Utd District, Cole made it clear that Osimhen is the man who can really help Man United, considering his age and pace.

Cole wants Osimhen at United

“Kane is 30 years old next season and Osimhen is 24 years old, and he’s already done a lot at his age too. Italian football is complicated, but there is no doubt that he can adapt to the Premier League.

If Manchester United wants to pay £100m for a 24-year-old or a 30-year-old, you have to look at it in the long term.”

Balotelli links up with Osimhen

Earlier, Sports Brief reported how Italian forward, Mario Balotelli met up with Victor Osimhen, following the Nigerian striker’s league triumph with Napoli.

The Super Eagles star led Gli Azzurri to their first league title in 33 years, after scoring 23 goals in Serie A this season.

Osimhen had already spoken to the former Inter Milan striker via Instagram the day the title was won.

The duo finally met in Italy, after Balotelli returned home to watch the UEFA Champions League semi-final clash between his former clubs, AC Milan and Inter Milan.
