Ighalo brakes silence on permanent deal saga

Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has revealed that he is yet to receive an offer from the club on permanent basis because the season is still on, and he is yet to finish his loan contract.

Ighalo signed for Man United last January transfer window on a six-month loan contract from Chinese side, Shanghai Shenhua.

The Nigerian striker has found th back of the net four times in eight appearances for the Red Devils so far this season, and United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to keep the 30-year-old beyond the end of the season.

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

“Because the season is still on, and I am yet to finish my loan deal. I do not just make 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.

“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’s 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.”

Ighalo is currently on self-isolation after the Premier League was suspended indefinitely due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

He won the club’s March Goal-of-the-Month Award after his sparkling effort goal against LASK in the Europa League.
