Odion Ighalo’s loan extended to January 2021

Forward player Odion Ighalo has extended his loan deal at Manchester United until January 2021.   

Ighalo, 30, joined United in January from the Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua, initially until 31 May.  Solskjaer hopes that Ighalo will be able to win a trophy for the team especially since it has been a dream for him.

“Shanghai Shenhua have been great towards us, allowing him to play for his dream club, “he said.

Ighalo has scored four times in eight appearances for the Old Trafford side, including a goal in the 5-0 Europa League win over LASK on 12 March, which was United’s last competitive match before the season was suspended because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Premier League season is set to resume on 17 June.

Background

United are fifth in the table, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea with nine games to play.

Solskjaer’s side is also in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup and has that five-goal lead going into the second leg of their Europa League last-16 tie against LASK.
