Torino confirms Man Utd interest in Ogbonna

Torino sporting director Gianluca Petrachi has confirmed that Manchester United are keeping tabs on Angelo Ogbonna.

The 24-year-old has impressed for Torino in recent seasons and the Italian side are not prepared to sell the defender for less than 16million.

"I can guarantee that there are observers of many foreign clubs who follow our games, including United's scouts," Petrachi told

"Most of the time they come just to see Ogbonna because he is a player who has great potential.

"Last year we refused 10million for him, but it is clear that he is worth more than 16million.

"When an offer arrives, the final word will be up to the player. Angelo certainly has the desire to do better, but I believe he should continue to grow with Torino because his primary goal is to improve himself with our team."

Ogbonna's current contract with Torino is set to expire in the summer of 2016.
