Former Manchester United striker Andy Cole has claimed that Manchester United should think about rivaling Arsenal and Chelsea for signatures of Brentford striker Ivan Toney.

Andy Cole insists that Toney can also come influential to develop 21-year-old Rasmus Hojlund. Speaking to The Winners Enclosure, he said:

 “I like Ivan and if he came to Manchester United, would he do a job? Absolutely he would. Rasmus Hojlund is still a young man, so it’s all down to whether the club is prepared to bring in an older striker that can help him out at this stage. 

“It all depends on what the transfer fee will be but for me personally, I believe Ivan would be a good signing for Manchester United if they make a move for him and he will definitely help Hojlund

While Manchester United like Ivan Toney, they will not enter into a bidding war with Arsenal and Chelsea for the services of the 27-year-old striker according to a report by Mirror Football.

Brentford are said to have placed a £100million price tag on Ivan Toney. While the price is certainly over the odds, Toney’s fast expiring contract should give interested teams leeway in negotiations. Whether an agreement can be found by United should they push for the player remains to be seen
