Former England Star Heaps Praise On Man United’s Latest Signing But Admits Harry Kane Is Better

Published

on

Romelu Lukaku may have completed a whopping £75million move to Man United, but Dion Dublin believes that the forward is only behind Harry Kane as the top striker in the Premier League. Kane has been on the wish list of Manchester United for quite a while, but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy did not entertain any offers from the Red Devils. United eventually went ahead and bought Romelu Lukaku.

Last season, Lukaku finished 4 goals shy of Harry Kane, who came up with 29 goals in the league. Over the last three seasons, these two players have been the top marksmen in the Premier League. Purely in terms of statistics, Kane has been able to edge in front of Lukaku by scoring 20 goals on an average. The Belgian international, meanwhile, has scored 15 goals on an average.

Dublin represented Manchester United in the early 1990’s. While he is extremely glad to witness Lukaku choose United over Chelsea, he believes that Harry Kane still remains as the top striker in the Premier league.

Kane has been crowned as the Premier league’s top marksman in the last two seasons. In the coming season, his biggest target will be to help the club make a significant impact in terms of winning a major honour. It is the next step in Spurs’ natural progression from being a top four contender into a title challenging outfit.

Harry Kane

This change has been brought about by the brilliant goal-scoring form of Kane. It is a commendable job that we have been able to retain the 23-year-old amidst interests from the big European clubs.

Being successful in terms of major honours will be the factor that would keep Kane, who has not shown the same motivation for money unlike most of the modern players. The striker has valued loyalty and the importance of trophies. Dublin, though, expects Lukaku to improve going forward. He was quoted by talkSport,

“I believe Lukaku is the biggest prospect in the Premier League, and can get better – a lot better. I don’t think there’s a box he doesn’t tick. Harry Kane, for me, ticks every single box. Lukaku is maybe just half a notch off.”

Since moving to Everton in 2014, Lukaku has scored 87 goals in 166 matches. Kane came through the ranks at Tottenham, and he has scored 95 goals in 165 appearances so far.
