Jamie Redknapp Thinks Mourinho Should Ditch Zlatan For Another PL Striker

Zlatan Ibrahimovic may have netted 13 times in 23 games for Manchester United since arriving at Old Trafford over the Summer, but Jamie Redknapp believes that the Swedish striker isn't as good an option up front for Jose Mourinho as Harry Kane would be.

United have been continuously linked with the Spurs striker over the past 12 months, with the 23-year-old enjoying two prolific seasons in the first team at White Hart Lane and has made an impressive start to the current campaign, finding the net nine times in 13 matches.

Kane was less than impressive during Sunday's 1-0 defeat to United at Old Trafford, though.

Speaking on Sky Sports in the aftermath of United's victory on Sunday, Redknapp was adamant that Kane was the man to lead the United line in the future.


"I'd rather have him (Kane) in my team than Zlatan. It's not even a question. "He offers a lot more for his team. He is a player in a few years you could see wearing a number nine shirt for United, or any other top team."

If Zlatan continues his current form throughout the rest of this season and next, however, Jose Mourinho may not need to consider anyone else leading his line. And even if the United manager does, he's got Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford waiting in the wings.
