Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo has welcomed the signing of former Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani, saying the arrival of the Uruguay marksman will increase competition for places in attack.
Ighalo has yet to make his full Premier League debut since joining Manchester United nine months ago, with his 12 appearances to date coming off the bench.
But he has started both games played by United in this season’s Carabao Cup, against Luton Town and Brighton & Hove.
Speaking on United’s new signings, Ighalo said “It’s good for the team, for everybody to be on their toes to work hard.
“For a big team, like Manchester United, you have to have competition for players to do well and I welcome the new guys coming in.
“They will bring more challenges to everyone in the team, to work hard for their positions to play in the team.”
