Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov believes Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is the right player to become the club’s next first choice striker.
United are attempting to seal a place in the Premier League’s top four ahead of the likes of Liverpool and Brighton and Hove Albion. And need to win their final three games to ensure they finish ahead of both and qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Goalscoring has been a challenge for Erik ten Hag’s United for the duration of the season. With the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in November. And struggling to put Anthony Martial on the pitch due to fitness and injury problems. Wout Weghorst was signed on loan in January. But has only scored twice since joining.
Neither of those goals have come in the league though. And United have only mustered 51 goals in 35 games – the number well below the teams around them.
“Ivan Toney has had a great season. But I don’t know if he can adapt to the way that Manchester United play football under Erik ten Hag. So that’s why I believe Victor Osimhen should be the priority. We don’t know who else Manchester United are going to chase in the transfer market. But they certainly need a player that’s capable of scoring many, many goals.
Speaking exclusively to UFABET on behalf of Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Berbatov insisted that United need to get their next acquisition right at centre forward, and makes Nigerian striker Osimhen his top choice ahead of Tottenham’s Harry Kane.
