Louis Saha claims that Manchester United target Randal Kolo Muani has different qualities compared to Harry Kane
Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha explains the qualities club target Randal Kolo Muani possesses that are different to Harry Kane.
“Randal Kolo Muani has different type of qualities to Harry Kane and he’s still young. But Muani has a hunger to always score goals, keeps himself busy on the pitch and can be very versatile. It’s a player who the Manchester United players will find easy to play with because he’s very smart in the way he plays.
“Muani won’t have any issues with the fitness or physicality needed in the Premier League, he can run all day and press high-up like we’ve seen with Wout Weghorst. He’s shown it for France with Kylian Mbappe, they connected instantly.”
Saha is right, Kolo Muani is more of a run-in-behind type of striker who will use his raw pace to terrorise defenders and score goals. Kane, on the other hand, is more of a technical number nine who can come deep and create chances for others as well.
The thing with Kolo Muani is that he can use that pace and directness on the ball while playing as a winger as well. So, if in a dream scenario United get him and Kane in the transfer window, Erik ten Hag can use them together with great effectiveness.
The Frenchman can make those out to in runs from wide areas and Kane can find him with inch-perfect balls. The latter will anyway find time to score goals himself.

But, we are talking in dream terms now, aren’t we? Irrespective of who United sign in the window, the important thing is that it should be approved by the manager. Before all that, can the Glazers, or whoever the new owners will be following the takeover saga, provide the necessary funds to make key signings? Let’s hope.
