Loading… Many have questioned that decision after seeing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer put faith in Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford – two forwards who have tended to be used in wider roles.With England international Rashford having now also been sidelined through injury, United were left with no choice but to find another frontman in the winter transfer window.That search went down to the wire, with links to several high-profile figures coming to nothing before former Watford star Ighalo was snapped up from Shanghai Shenhua on an initial loan deal.Eyebrows were raised as that deadline-day deal was pushed through, but Berbatov feels the Nigeria international with past Premier League experience could be a useful option.The former Red Devils striker 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 too. 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.center_img Read Also: Xavi furious with Abidal after denying Barcelona offer“Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial both like to cut in from the left so United have arguably lacked a natural No.9 this season. That’s what Ighalo should give them and I will be interested to see how they play with him in the side.“I liked Ighalo’s interview in which he said how happy he was to move to Old Trafford. He was so keen that he told his agent he would accept a pay cut. It’s great to see United sign a player who is passionate about the club. They need players like that.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted ContentThe 10 Best Secondary Education Systems In The WorldWill You Recognize Celebs In Their Kid Photos?12 Actors Who Always Play Bad CharactersBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever Made7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterThe 10 Most Irresistible Asian Actresses9 Facts You Should Know Before Getting A TattooGreatest Movies In History Since 19828 Ways Drones Will Automate Our Future7 Reasons Why You Might Want To Become A VegetarianA Soviet Shot Put Thrower’s Record Hasn’t Been Beaten To This DayBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Themlast_img read more
