Sir Alex Ferguson has been tracking
Ogbonna since the start of the Italian season and United scouts have
been running regular checks on the defender.

Torino’s sporting director Gianluca
Petrachi said: 'I guarantee there are observers of many foreign clubs
who follow our games, including United’s scouts.

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

'Last year we refused 10m for him but it is clear he is worth more than 16m.

'Angelo has the desire to do better but I believe he should continue to grow with Torino.'

Ogbonna, 24, was part of Italy’s Euro 2012 squad after helping Torino storm to promotion.
