Pundit tells Manchester United that Lukaku is not as good as Tottenham Hotspur’s Kane

Former Manchester United player Dion Dublin has claimed that the club’s new signing Romelu Lukaku is not quite the finished product just yet.

The Red Devils announced at the weekend that they have agreed a deal with Everton to sign the Belgian forward.

Lukaku was heavily linked to his former club Chelsea, but he will now fill the void left by Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford.

The striker was Everton’s main man last season, eventually ending the campaign with an impressive 25-goal haul.

While Dublin believes that Lukaku is a great “prospect”, he is not convinced that he possesses the same threat as that of Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane.

The England forward picked up his second consecutive Golden Boot at the end of last season after finding the back of the net 29 times in the Premier League.

He told talkSPORT:

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

Meanwhile, Everton did not leave empty-handed as they secured the return of their former player Wayne Rooney from United on a separate deal.

The 31-year-old, who began his career at Goodison Park, has signed a two-year deal with the Merseyside outfit.
