Man United transfers: Torino’s Angelo Ogbonna flattered by Red Devils link
Man United transfers: Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna says he is flattered by interest from the Premier League leaders
Torino defender Angelo Ogbonna says he is flattered by interest from Premier League leaders Manchester United.
The Red Devils reportedly sent scouts to watch the 24-year-old in Torino’s 2-1 loss to Roma at the Stadio Olimpico in Turin on Saturday.
Ogbonna has impressed for Torino over the past two seasons, earning a call-up to Cesare Prandelli’s Italy squad for last summer’s European championship.
While the Cassino-born defender is enjoying interest from the 19-time English champions, Ogbonna is focused on keeping Torino in Serie A this term.
“If they came to see me, this obviously flatters me, but right now I don’t think about the future,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“I live in the present and, just like all my team mates, I think only to the Torino’s salvation.”
Ogbonna has scored one goal in 128 appearances for Torino after graduating from their youth team in 2006.
