The Nigerian is on loan from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua and has certainly made his presence felt with four goals in eight appearances.

United currently have four strikers in the squad, including Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood who have all reached double figures this season.

However, Ighalo has confirmed he is yet to receive a new offer from the Red Devils to make the move permanent.

"There is no offer on the table yet," Ighalo told Elegbete TV.

"Because the season is still on and I'm yet to finish my loan deal.

"I don't just take decisions alone in my life. I have a principle and I have a guideline for everything I do. I always pray to God to direct me."

There were reports claiming that Shenhua are prepared to offer the former Super Eagles star a new two-year deal worth £400,000 a week.

"I have seen so many tweets about this. I have seen so many people going crazy, [saying] 'go back to China', some say stay with Man United," he added.

"Have you seen me say a word? I don't have anything to say. When the season is finished and I get two offers from the two teams, then I will sit and think about it, pray about it and whatever God says I should do, I will go with that.

"I don't just sit down and take decisions, and I don't get carried away with whatever people say. I came to Manchester United to play for a pay cut because I wanted to. So anything could happen, but I want the season to finish and my loan to finish. Then I will see everything I have.

"You don't just rush and do things: 'I'm going here, I'm going here'. I have to sit down and finish the season well, sit down with my agent, see what's on the ground: A, B, C, D, is on the ground. Okay we have to pick."
