Ighalo breaks silence on Man United future


Nigerian international striker Odion Ighalo has revealed there is no offer on the table yet from Manchester United over extending his stay at the club beyond his current loan spell.

Ighalo has scored 4 goals in 8 games since arriving on loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January.

Although United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has since hinted that Ighalo could be kept at the club beyond the end of the current campaign, the 30-year-old says an offer is yet to be formalised.

“There is no offer on the table yet,” Ighalo told ElegbeteTV.

“Because the season is still on and I’m yet to finish my loan deal. I don’t just take decisions alone in my life. I have a principle and I have a guideline for everything I do. I always pray to God to direct me,” he said.

“I have seen so many tweets about this. I have seen so many people going crazy, (saying) ‘go back to China’, some say stay with Man United. Have you seen me say a word? I don’t have anything to say. When the season is finished and I get two offers from the two teams, then I will sit and think about it, pray about it and whatever God says I should do, I will go with that,” he added.

Ighalo’s current contract expires in December 2022, but Shanghai want to keep him until at least December 2024.
