Odion Ighalo, a former Manchester United striker, has advised his Nigerian counterpart, Victor Osimhen, to join the Red Devils despite claims of interest from Old Trafford.
With his remarkable performance this season, the 24-year-old has piqued the curiosity of prominent European teams such as Manchester United, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Liverpool, and Real Madrid.
In 21 league appearances for the Parthenopeans in the 2022/23 season, the Serie A top goal scorer had 19 goals and three assists.
Erik ten Hag, the manager of Manchester United, has named the Nigerian as his top transfer target for next summer.
In a video interview with Sky Sports, Al Hilal striker Ighalo stated that Osimhen’s style of play is a perfect fit for United and urged him to sign with the Red Devils, saying that he would create an ideal partnership with Marcus Rashford.
“I think it’s a good fit. Having Osimhen and Rashford will cause any defender panic,” Ighalo told Sky Sports.
“If Osimhen asks me for my advice and what he should do, I’d advise him to go join Manchester United because it’s the biggest club.
“I think he would fit into Manchester United so well.”
