'Can't go wrong' - Man Utd legend picks favourite striker target
Manchester United have been linked with each of Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen and Randal Kolo Muani - an easy choice according to former Red Devil Dion Dublin…
United's need for a No.9 next season is clear. Wout Weghorst has struggled since joining on loan from Burnley, via Besiktas, in January, whilst their 27-goal top scorer Marcus Rashford does his best work from the left flank.
Cristiano Ronaldo scored 18 goals in the Premier League last season, but he has gone halfway through this after slamming the club and manager Erik ten Hag in an unsanctioned interview with Piers Morgan in December.

A significant budget will be put towards a new striker next summer - whether the Glazers, Sheikh Jassim or Sir Jim Ratcliffe own the club by then - but Dublin thinks Kane is a no-brainer.

What did Dublin say?
"Let's be honest, if you put Harry into any side in the Premier League you could describe him as 'the missing link,'" the former striker, who won the title with United in 1993, told The Mirror.
"He's going to score 25 goals in any of them - not just at Manchester United - and they aren't far off at all as it is.

"But the stature of him as a player, where he is, of his quality surrounded by Marcus [Rashford], Jadon Sancho, Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Christian Eriksen - I don't see how it can go wrong.
"If they can get Harry’s signing over the line, I think they will be bang in the frame to win the title."
Kane has scored 21 goals in 28 games in the Premier League this season, second only to Manchester City goal machine Erling Haaland.
The England captain is now his nation's all-time top scorer and has won a host of individual awards, but is yet to win a team trophy in his career.
