Berbatov: Cavani’s Arrival At Man United Not Good For Ighalo

Former Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov is concerned over the future of Odion Ighalo following the arrival of Edison Cavani at the club, reports Completesports.com.

Cavani joined the Red Devils on transfer deadline day and is expected to be the club’s main striker.

Ighalo, who arrived United on loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January has featured in one league game for the club this season.

The Nigerian striker has failed to make the matchday squad in their last two league games.

Cavani’s arrival will further push him down the pecking order and Berbatov is worried about his future at the club.

“The likes of Ibrahimovic and Henrik Larsson had huge impacts late in their careers at United, and Cavani can do the same. He can be a great help to Martial, Rashford, and Greenwood. He is sure to have had a good talk with Ole before signing, and while he won’t have demanded to play every game, he isn’t coming to sit on the bench either,”Betfair.com.

“Some will say this is a panic buy, but with the speculation of players that didn’t sign, it’s clear they wanted an attacking player. Sancho may not have worked out, so they get Cavani instead, and he can score goals. The really interesting question is how it affects the young boys, and what this means for Ighalo.”

    Why you still want to sit in Man utd bench is strange. To remember you cut your wages to stay in Man Utd is still is …I don;t understand you again oh Ighalo.

  • Am of a very sound opinion that the gut should leave Man u after the expiration of his loan deal.Am very sure another club in the premiership will gladly buy him. Ighalo is a player that us highly revered.
