Aaron Wan-Bissaka Is One Of The Best Full-Back In The World Right Now... Odion Ighalo Acclaims.

Odion Ighalo has highly praised teammate Aaron Wan-Bissaka by revealing that the Manchester United right-back as one of the best defenders in the world.

Wan-Bissaka’s ability to contain opponents and get tackles in are considered to be his biggest strengths, with few getting the better of him in one-on-one battles, is already proving to be one of the best signing for United last summer.

The 22-year-old after just spending one full season as a senior star at Selhurst Park, completed a transfer from former club Crystal Palace to join the red devils last July for a reported fee of £50million ($63million), and has taken his game to another level.

Ighalo who has only spent a short time with his new team-mates, having only linked up with United in January, has been among those to have been very impressed by Wan-Bissaka's performance.

“The guy is one of the best right-backs. The Nigerian, Ighalo told Juliet Bawuah.
“His waist is like rubber, the way he bends and steals the ball.

“I think this guy is going to get injured and then next second he’s going again. He’s very difficult to get past."
'He's a very, very good player. His work-rate is amazing."

As a frontman, Ighalo was also asked if he has ever beaten Wan-Bissaka in training since joining the club;
"I'm a striker, so I want to stay in the middle, the game is more plaesurable than reality"... Ighola replied with a smile.

Ighalo is one of many players whose future still remain unclear at United, as it is still in decided, if he would remain a United player or retrn to his parent club Shanghai Shenhua when his loan spell expires at Old Trafford  in May.

The former Watford striker will need to take a staggering £200,000 per-week pay cut to see his loan stay at United be a permanent one.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has intentions to keep him permanently and the Ighalo also wants to remain at his dream club.

He currently earns £300,000 a-week salary with the Chinese side Shenhua Shanghai, who also are eager to keep him in China by offering him a tempting £400,000 a-week deal, so as he would extend his current contract with the side by two-years.
