Ferdinand Urges Manchester United To Sign Kane Instead Of Osimhen

Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand has said it would be “a risk” for the Premier League club to sign Victor Osimhen from Napoli.

Osimhen, who scored 23 goals for the Serie A club as they won the title this season, has been linked with a move to Old Trafford.

But Ferdinand has reservations over the Super Eagles’ striker’s ability to perform in England’s top flight.

Osimhen is a different kettle of fish. He’s 24, he’s scored goals in France and now in Italy. Won the league (in Italy) and knows how to win leagues.

“He’s been a No.9 at a dominant team in the football league. Is that transferable to the Premier League? No one knows that. That’s the chance United would have to take on him.

“That’s the only risk I see. He doesn’t know the league – that’s it. Ability wise and profile, goalscoring, he ticks every box, but there is an unknown factor in does he know how to play in the Premier League? Can he adapt to the Premier League?

“But I wouldn’t see that as a big risk. I’d take either of those two and I’d be happy but the one thing with Kane, he guarantees you 20 or 25 goals a season. There’s no doubt in your mind he gets that when he comes to Man Utd,” Ferdinand said on his VIBE with Five podcast.
