Salomon Rondon Man Utd Star Ighalo

Manchester United star Odion Ighalo has received a good luck message from Salomon Rondon – who has revealed the club were in talks with his representatives about a move to Old Trafford last month.

Before United swooped for the Nigeria international, Rondon was being linked with a sensational switch to Old Trafford.

And the 30-year-old has confirmed the club’s interest, telling The Athletic: “It was all out of my hands.

“It means a lot to be linked with Manchester United because they have a great history and it must mean they think I did well in the Premier League.

“They started to talk to my agent and I was just waiting by my phone for a decision, maybe for the lawyers, but then I saw Ighalo had signed.

 “It didn’t get to the stage where an offer was made or anything like that, but I think it was really close.”

Rondon, who currently plays in China with Dalian Professional, then admitted he was pleased for Ighalo, adding: “It’s just football.

“It’s decisions again and they obviously decided Ighalo was the best decision for them.

“I’ve played against him and I’m pleased for him.

“All I can do is keep working. I’m concentrating on Dalian, on working and learning and listening to the manager.
