Manchester United to sign Odion Ighalo permanently for £15m

Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo is set to sign permanently for Manchester United, as the Premier League club lines up a £15m bid for him.

According to Daily Mail, Manchester United will pay up to £15million this summer to sign Ighalo as his temporary move from Shanghai Shenhua is set to end on May 31.

Shanghai is prepared to sell Odion Ighalo and has put a £15m valuation on the player, and with his impressive form, that seems like a bargain.

Since signing for the club in the January transfer window, the Nigerian striker has scored four goals in his first eight matches for Manchester United.

Earlier this month, Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that United was interested in making Ighalo’s move permanent.

‘He will improve and get better,’ said the United boss. He has the qualities we saw in him that we needed. And we will still need those qualities next season — so let’s see what we will do.’
