Osimhen Opens Door To Man Utd Transfer After  Ighalo Advice

Lille striker Victor Osimhen has opened the door to a move to Manchester United in the future by admitting he wants to play for a “big club in England”.

Osimhen has emerged as a man in demand after bagging 13 goals in 25 starts in Ligue 1 this season.

The Nigerian striker, 21, failed to make the grade at Wolfsburg when he first moved to Europe but impressed at Charleroi before his breakthrough in France this season.

He is now being heavily linked with a host of top clubs – including the Red Devils – and international team-mate Odion Ighalo recently revealed he advises him on his future.

Osimhen has now lifted the lid on his talks with Ighalo, labelling the on-loan United striker “like a brother” and hinting he could one day head to Old Trafford.

For the time being, however, he insists he is happy at Lille and will only join a top club if he is assured of regular action.

Speaking to the Independent Osimhen said: ‘Of course, one day I’d like to play for a big club in England.

“I’ve spoken to Odion [Ighalo] about it. He gave me very good advice, he’s a legend and a big brother.

“My goal is to play at one of the biggest clubs in the world but now I’m very happy in Lille.

“My priority is to play a lot of games. Signing for a big club and being on the bench is not exciting for me.”
