Rio Ferdinand: I ‘wouldn’t be disappointed’ if Man United sign Osimhen

Says the Nigerian is 'arguably in better form than anyone in the world at the moment'

Six time Premier League champion with Manchester United, Rio Ferdinand feels his former club needs a striker this summer and wants the Red Devils to sign either Tottenham Hotspur forward, Harry Kane or Napoli of Italy hitman, Victor Osimhen.

Ferdinand who featured 455 times for Man United told Manchester Evening News his old club needs to sign a striker to able able to compete on all fronts next season.

“I think United are looking to sign a striker, there’s no secrets around it,” he explained as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“Wout Weghorst was maybe a short-term option, although I think he has offered a lot and is doing everything that the manager would have wanted.

“There are two options that jump out at you. I think Victor Osimhen, in terms of form and being that out-and-out number nine striker, is arguably in better form than anyone in the world at the moment,” said the defender who had 189 clean sheets, made 292 tackles with an 81% success rate and also made 341 interceptions and 916 recoveries in 504 Premier League appearances.
