Ighalo Stats At Man United Has Been Impressive.

Manchester United are eager to keep on-loan striker Odion Ighalo up until the end of the 2019-20 season, but it’s also possible they will lose the Nigerian at the end of this week.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says United are having discussions with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua about extending the former Watford striker’s contract at Old Trafford, but a deal has not yet been agreed with Ighalo's parent club.

Solskjaer told MUTV: "The loan deal went until the end of May now, so obviously he's supposed to be going back.

"We're in dialogue. They've been great towards us, his club, and allowed him to play for his dream club.

"It's been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, hopefully with a trophy for us.

"At the moment, nothing has been agreed. Their league is going to get started soon so we're just waiting to see."

Ighalo, 30, scored four goals in eight appearances for the Red Devils before the 2019-20 season came to a halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
