Reports: Man Utd Make Huge Ighalo Decision

Manchester United, who could reportedly lose Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo before the season resumes, have now reportedly made a decision on his future.

The 30-year-old has impressed during his loan spell at Old Trafford so far, scoring four goals in eight appearances, three of which were starts.

However, the Premier League side is at risk of losing the striker before football returns to action (currently on an enforced break due to the coronavirus) with his loan scheduled to end on 31 May – one month before many other loan deals expire.

United could attempt to extend his loan initially, but now seem keen to buy him permanently.

According to the Daily Mail, Shanghai Shenhua are prepared to let him go for £15 million (R309 million), and United are ready to pay that figure.

Ighalo himself, though, has insisted now is not the right time to talk about his future, amid the coronavirus crisis.

"Talking about other things now would not only be selfish but terribly insensitive," he said on the weekend.

"The challenge before us is not a football one, but a global one.

"You can't put football before health challenges."
