Breaking news regarding every United fan’s favorite Nigerian striker, our very own Odion Ighalo has been offered a bumper contract renewal from his home club Shanghai Shenhua.
Looks like the player, as well as Manchester United, will have big decisions to make in the coming months about where Igahlo’s future takes him. Does he play for the club he’s supported since he was a child, or return to China for a massive payday.
Honestly, couldn’t fault the player with whatever decision he makes. More from Sky Sports below:
Manchester United loanee Odion Ighalo has been offered a two-year contract extension worth more than £400,000 per week by his parent club Shanghai Shenhua.
The Chinese club want to reward the Nigerian striker for his good form at United, where has scored four goals in his first three starts.
The 30-year-old’s loan in England expires on May 31 but, as Sky Sports reported on Monday, it is likely to be extended until June 30 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Ighalo’s current contract expires in December 2022 and Shanghai want to keep him until December 2024.
The new deal would see Ighalo earn £400,000 a week before tax, which is said to have flattered the striker.
His focus, though, is on United until his loan spell expires. He will wait to see if United offer him a permanent deal before making a final decision on his future.
Ighalo has always said it has been a dream playing for United, the club he supported as a boy.
