United extends Ighalo loan

Manchester United has extended striker Odion Ighalo’s loan from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua until the end of January 2021, the English Premier League club said yesterday. The 30-year-old made an impressive start to life at United, scoring four times in eight games after signing an initial loan deal until May 31 from the Chinese Super League club. Ighalo’s current deal with Shanghai runs out in December 2022 and he is expected to sign a new contract until the end of 2024, Sky reported. The Nigerian, who has scored two goals apiece for United in the Europa League and FA Cup, will hope to open his account in the EPL when the season, suspended since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, resumes on June 17. “They (Shanghai) have been great towards us, allowing him to play for his dream club,” manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said last week. “It’s been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish what he started and win a trophy with us.”
