Ogbonna welcomes Manchester United interest

Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna has revealed that he is flattered by the interest from Premier League giants Manchester United.

The Red Devils have been closely monitoring the player for a while now with a view of luring him to Old Trafford in the summer.

United scouts were in Turin to watch the player in the 2-1 defeat to Roma, and the Italy international says he is proud to be linked to such a great club.

“If they came to see me, this obviously flatters me, but right now I don’t think about the future,” the 24-year-old told Sky Sport Italia.

“I live in the present and, just like all my team mates, I think only of Torino’s salvation.”

Angelo Ogbonna hasn’t quite managed to prove his worth this season having missed a big part of the league campaign through injury, but he is, nonetheless, still held in high regard by top European clubs.

Torino’s €20 million valuation could prove to be an obstacle to any deal, although the interested sides are obviously hoping to lower the asking price.

Ogbonna has featured in 141 Serie A games for Torino, while he has 5 Italy caps to his name.
