Ighalo: No Good Striker Can Go To Man U - Ex Chelsea Player
Erstwhile Chelsea forward Gudjohnsen has said Manchester United were always going to struggle to recruit a top calibre striker during the January window.
When he was asked how far back United have fallen, Gudjohnsen said: "It comes back to the time of the season of this [Ighalo] transfer as well. I don't think any of the best strikers are available."He added: "I don't think any of the best strikers are eager to join United anymore."Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink says Ighalo, who has played in China since January 2017, is unlikely to have even been a third choice target for United.
He must be the luckiest man! Going to China, being away from Europe nobody seeing him for two and a half years since he was at Watford and then getting a loan move at United," he said."Wow. That doesn't happen!"It says how far behind United are from Liverpool, Manchester City and even Chelsea. They have got a big job ahead.
"They needed somebody in. I think he was not their number one and I would be surprised if he was their number two or three as well.
"He is getting an opportunity and he will definitely get minutes and we will see if he can do it."
He added: "They knew that they needed a new striker for a long time. I don't know how much money that they have but it is Manchester United.
