Manchester United signed Odion Ighalo during the January transfer window, and the Nigerian striker has hugely impressed in such a short time.
He has scored four goals in his first three starts at the club, and United are reportedly looking to sign him permanently in the summer transfer window. His current loan expires on May 31st but it is likely to be extended till June 30 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
According to latest reports from Sky Sports, Ighalo has been offered a two-year contract extension worth more than £400,000 per week by his parent club Shanghai Shenhua.
Ighalo has a contract at the Chinese club till 2022. However, Shanghai Shenhua wants him to extend his stay at the club till 2024. The new deal would see Ighalo earn £400,000 a week and it would be very tempting for the 30-year-old to reject it outright.
Here are some of the selected tweets from the Manchester United fans on Twitter:
