Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering brining in loan-signing Odion Ighalo on a permanent deal, according to Football 365.
The striker has become the first Nigerian player to star for Manchester United, following his January loan move from Shanghai Shenhua.
At 30-years-old and Premier League experience with Watford, the United side received a fair amount of criticism for the move from opposition fans and parts of the media.
However, they are all-but silenced now, given Ighalo’s strong start to his Manchester United career which has seen him score four goals in nine appearances for his new club.
The Nigerian ace is also a big hit amongst the United faithful who took to the African straight away, following his move from the Far East.
Solskjaer has now hinted that Ighalo could become a permanent fixture in his United squad.
He said: “He has qualities we saw in him and needed and we need those qualities for next season”.
And The Daily Mirror say Shanghai Shenhua would ‘demand’ £15m for any move, a price that will not worry the hierarchy of United, considering their recent big-money moves.
