Former Super Eagles and Ajax Amsterdam forward Finidi George has offered some advice to fellow Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo as his United future remains uncertain.
Finidi was reacting to comments credited to a former Manchester United captain Gary Neville who believes the club management should not spend a £20m transfer fee for Ighalo at this time.
Neville said on Instagram Live: “Is Ighalo worth £20 million? Probably not in this market. He may have been if he continued scoring goals but you probably don’t need now to spend £20 million.”
In a chat with Nigerian publication brila.net, the former Ajax winger said Ighalo has a decision to make concerning his future as the entire footballing lifespan is short.
“If he wants to be in the limelight, he has to stay with the Premier League but if he is going for the money he should go back to China,” Finidi said.
“It all depends on what he wants at this stage of his career, he is thirty now so, he should look at what is before him and make a decision fast.”
The 30-year-old has impressed since arriving at Old Trafford, providing invaluable squad depth and competition for Anthony Martial.
