Manchester United consider making Odion Ighalo loan move permanent after secrets revealed in contract

Manchester United are considering making Odion Ighalo loan move permanent according to reports on Monday.

According to Sportsmail, Ighalo’s loan move to Manchester United from Shanghai Shenhua will end on May 31 earlier than the most of the loan deals of other players.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is impressed Ighalo’s good stats at the club after the former Watford striker scored four goals in his first eight matches.

Manchester United did not pay a loan move fee rather agreed to contribute £130,000 a week towards Ighalo’s wages of £300,000 a week.

In an exclusive interview with Sportsmail, Ighalo distanced himself from the news saying the problem per now is not football but global and its better to talk about health issues than football.

‘The challenge before us is not a football one, but a global one. You can’t put football before health challenges.’

After United’s win against LASK earlier this month, Solskjaer gave an indication that United were interested in making Ighalo’s move permanent. ‘He will improve and get better,’ said the United boss.

‘He has qualities we saw in him that we needed. And we will still need those qualities next season — so let’s see what we will do.’
