Former Manchester United striker, Berbatov Dimitar, has verbally expressed that Odion Ighalo could be fit for the no. 9 role at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils have been without an ascendant centre forward, after they sold Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan last summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been left with Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, who prefer to cut in from wide.
With Rashford ruled out with a back injury, Solskjaer brought in Ighalo to bolster his assailing options.
Berbatov feels that the Nigerian’s Premier League experience will be valuable to the Red Devils.
He told Betfair:
“I think it’s a good move for united because Ighalo has played in the Premier League, and did well with Watford, so he will know what to expect.
“He’s scored plenty of goals in China and his record for Nigeria is impressive additionally. I want to see him play as soon as possible because I’m curious to see how he will fit in to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans.
“Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial both prefer to cut in from the left so united have controvertibly lacked a natural No.9 this season. That’s what Ighalo should give them and I will be fascinated to see how they play with him in the side.”
