The Nigerian international Odion Ighalo and Manchester United, the story started very well but it could have a frustrating end. Loaned by the Shanghai Shenhua until June 30 at the Red Devils, the 30-year-old forward recently announced his desire to finish the season he started with the training coached by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Because if the 2019-2020 exercise in the Premier League has been stopped since March 13, it could resume its rights in the coming weeks to end beyond June 30.
And as Sky Sports points out, the Shanghai Shenhua intends to recover the Nigerian international so that it is ready to start the next season of the Chinese Super League. This is why Odion Ighalo is expected from China. The British media reveals that the only way for Manchester United to keep the Super Eagle would be to pay nearly 25 M € to the Chinese club in order to definitively attach its services, while Newcastle seems ready to jump on the occasion. It remains to be seen how the story will end between the former scorer of Watford, author of 4 goals and 1 assist in his 8 appearances with the Mancunian jersey, and the residents of Old Trafford. Chinese will start their new football season in June ending.
