Seems Ighalo will go back to China very soon!
Manchester United will have to complete the £20million transfer of Odion Ighalo by the end of May, after loan talks with Shanghai Shenhua reportedly collapsed.
United chiefs were hoping to extend the Nigeria international’s loan deal for the Premier League’s ‘Project Restart’ but the Chinese outfit will only sanction a permanent deal. With Ighalo’s loan drawing to a close at the end of the month, United now face a decision whether to cough up £20m to sign him or accept he won’t be part of their squad if and when the season resumes.
The Chinese Super League is set to resume in July meaning it’s likely there will be a clash with delayed Premier League fixtures, which is why Shanghai bosses are unwilling to extend his loan deal.
