Clubs battle for Ighalo with ex-Super Eagles striker set to leave Man Utd


Odion Ighalo’s representative has claimed that clubs in the Premier League, Europe, and Middle East are very keen on signing the Manchester United forward.

Ighalo joined the Red Devils in January 2020 on an initial six-month loan deal from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

The former Super Eagles striker hit the ground running on his arrival, scoring five goals during his first spell with the side to earn a contract extension.

He has, however, struggled for game time this season, having only featured in four games across all competitions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Ighalo will come to the end of his stay at the Old Trafford this month following the expiration of his loan deal with the club.
