Man Utd To Lose Ighalo Before Season Ends?

Odion Ighalo has impressed in his short spell with Manchester United so far, but the Red Devils could reportedly lose the Nigerian striker before the season finishes.

The former Super Eagles striker joined the Red Devils on loan from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua on the final day of the January transfer window.

The Nigerian's loan deal expires on 30 June 2020, however with the 2019/2020 season currently suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak, there has been no official date when the Premier League will resume.

All professional football has been postponed until April 30, and the Red Devils' season could well go into July as they still have 10 league games to play and are still in the FA Cup and UEFA Europa League.

According to the Manchester Evening News, should the season go beyond June, Ighalo would be under no obligation to play for the Red Devils after his contract ends.

The report does go on to say that the two parties could work on an extension for the Nigerian while FIFA have confirmed they are monitoring the contract situation.

"FIFA is analysing the current situation and the potential impact it may have on all areas of football, including player contracts. More information will follow in due course," FIFA said, as per Manchester Evening News.
