Ighalo Set to Leave Manchester United This Week As Shanghai Shenhua Reject Loan Extension
Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo could be on his way out of Manchester United after his parent club, Shanghai Shenhua rejected the Old Trafford side’s request to keep him for another three months.
Ighalo’s loan deal at Manchester United runs out on Sunday, May 31 and although the club wanted him until August so he could play a part in the restart of the Premier League, Shenhua want the striker back as soon as possible.
Already, they have offered him a two-year contract extension of £400,000 a week until 2024.
The 30-year-old resumed training the United squad at Carrington last week but it remains unclear if Ighalo will be at the Old Trafford by this time next week.
Ighalo’s four goals for Manchester United all came in cup competitions (League Cup and Europa League).
