Odion Ighalo set to turn down Mega-China offer?

Odion Ighalo set to turn down Mega-China offer?”

The Daily Star says Ighalo is willing to risk a new £75m contract with Shanghai Shenhua to remain with United for the rest of the season.

However, with the season suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, it has given Rashford time to recover and United feel he will be available to play when the season resumes in June.

Former Nigeria worldwide Ighalo arrived at United on loan on the final day of the January transfer window in a deal that would keep him at the club until May 31, when the season would have ordinarily come to an end.

But according to ESPN, Shanghai Shenhua have now softened their stance on extending Odion Ighalo's loan and negotiations are ongoing.

It seems that Shanghai do not want to sell Ighalo at any cost this summer, which means that Newcastle will have to look elsewhere for a new striker.

With his current deal set to expire on Sunday, it is understood that there is growing confidence a last-minute deal can be agreed to keep the 30-year-old at United until January.

Ighalo joined Manchester United on loan from Chinese Super League club Shanghai in the January transfer window.

However, the Chinese outfit are now open to letting the striker stay at United until January, but only on the condition that he signs a new deal with them worth £400,000 per week.

"The loan deal went until the end of May now, so obviously he's supposed to be going back", Solskjaer told MUTV.

SunSport revealed that Ighalo was said to have reached out to the Chinese side to allow him with Man United - his childhood dream club.

"It's been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, hopefully with a trophy for us".
