Ivan Toney may have troublesome Man United determination to make
Ivan Toney will have a “very difficult choice” when Manchester United joins the Brentford striker this summer, former Bees hero Sam Sodje has claimed.
Much has been said about players like Odsonne Edouard and Danny Ings being players moving to Old Trafford, but Icfootballnews has now learned that United are exploring the idea of bringing Toney out of Brentford.
Toney had never played in the second division before joining the West Londoner last August for an initial £ 5m replacement for Ollie Watkins, but despite the pressure, he’d taken it like a duck in the water.
Toney has now overshadowed those who lagged before him, breaking Glenn Murray’s record of most goals in a Sky Bet Championship campaign since the division was renamed in 2004.
And amid speculation that United are looking to make a possible move, Sodje has claimed that Toney will have a very tough decision to make if the Red Devils take a step.
He told All Nigeria Soccer: “I was in this position for a while, where you play for Brentford and big clubs come for you.
“Brentford rose, Toney had a great season so this could be an opportunity to play for a top Premier League club.
“But at the same time you want him to play games in the Premier League, so he has to go to a club or stay in Brentford where he gets games in the Premier League.
“When it comes to individual goals, you don’t get the chance to play for Arsenal, Manchester United or the big clubs every day, so it’s a very difficult decision.
“There are two things you either stay in Brentford, play every game, or take the opportunity to play for a big club.”
