- Odion Igahlo could be affected by the arrival of Edison Cavani at Man United, according to Ian Wright
- The veteran England striker believes Ighalo and Martial should step up their games to remain relevant in Solskajer's squad
- Cavani has already made two appearances against Chelsea in the Premier League and Leipzig in the Champions League
Ian Wright has warned Odion Ighalo that the arrival of Edison Cavani during the summer window could have a negative effect on his performances in training and on the pitch.
The Arsenal legend has been in support of Cavani's inclusion into Manchester United but is concerned about the Uruguayan knocking of the Nigerian striker.
Ighalo could be having fewer minutes since the arrival of the Paris Saint-Germain forward who scored 200 goals for the Ligue 1 side in seven years.
The former Nigerian international will need to up his game ahead of the former Napoli star who has already made substitute appearances against Chelsae and RB Leipzig.
Wright recalled the experience he had when France striker Nicolas Anelka joined Arsenal and the veteran England striker saw that the end of his career with the Gunners was edging closer.
He warned Ighalo and Anthony Martial that they could find themselves in similar positions now that the Uruguayan striker joined Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.
Wright said on podcast Wrighty’s House:
"I saw a picture of him the other day.
"As a striker, I know Anthony Martial and even Ighalo, you see him come in… your whole energy just goes somewhere – it’s not right.
"I remember when Anelka came in and I know Cavani is of world class status now but Anelka watching him then – my energy changed because I knew that the end was nigh.
This is what Ighalo, Ndidi, Abraham and other Premier League stars are going to do to victims of ENDSARS movement
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Marcus Rashford now holds the record for the quickest substitute to score a hat-trick following Man United's thrashing of RB Leipzig at Old Trafford.
The England international was brought on for Jonny van De Beek in the 63rd minute while United were leading by 1-0.
The 22-year-old beat an offside trap from a Bruno Fernandes through pass to increase the lead to 2-0 11 minutes after his introduction.
