Losing Ighalo, Man Utd coach Solskjaer immediately bought 'junior' instead

If he does not buy Odion Ighalo, Solskjaer will turn to Joshua King, the striker from Man Utd training but currently plays for Bournemouth.

Joshua King was trained at Man Utd Academy but his name is known only in 5 years playing for Bournemouth with 48 goals.

Earlier this year, in the context of needing a "fire striker" when Rashford was injured, Man Utd dropped 20 million pounds to buy King on the last day of the Eastern Market.
However, the Bournemouth side nearly shouted the price, forcing the Manchester team to turn to borrow Odion Ighalo.

Despite proving his ability, Ighalo is hard to be signed by Man Utd because he has turned 30 and the salary is quite high.

To fill the void in the attacking line next season, Solskjaer needs to recruit another striker. According to Sky Sports, the Reds' primary goal remains Joshua King.

However, Man Utd will have to compete with 6 other teams in the Premier League also want Joshua King.

After being blocked by Bournemouth earlier this year, King expressed disappointment with the club's management.
