SAN FRANCISCO, May 23, (THEWILL) – Former Manchester United player, Owen Hargreaves, believes that Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo, should be a permanent player at Manchester United because he has earned it.
Speaking to talkSPORT, Hargreaves said he hopes Ighalo stays a little longer in Old Trafford.
He said: “I think he’s been a good fit for Man United and when you sign players you’ve got to get the right fit,” Hargreaves said.
“It’s not always about getting the best name, it’s about getting the guy that you don’t have that you need.
“He was somebody that whoever signed him hats off to you, because he’s given them something different.
“Hopefully he stays but there’s the whole Sanchez situation when he comes back, Martial and Rashford, he’s fit as well, Bruno [Fernandes] and [Paul] Pogba – you’ve got to get them all into a team, with Daniel James as well.
“So he’s been good, really good. I’m sure they’ll try, if it’s sensible, keep him longer. I’d be surprised if he left.”
