Manchester United: Red Devils fans react to Samuel Luckhurst’s update on Odion Ighalo - Manchester United

Manchester United could make Odion Ighalo’s loan a permanent move in the summer, according to a report by Manchester Evening News.

Chief football writer Samuel Luckhurst shared the latest transfer update via his Twitter account:

Ighalo scored his fourth goal in just eight appearances for the Red Devils since moving to Old Trafford from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua on a short-term loan in January. The 30-year-old netted a fantastic finish to kick-start United’s 5-0 thrashing of LASK in the Europa League last-16 first leg (Transfermarkt).

The former Nigerian international’s loan contract expires on 30th June although the board do have the option to buy the striker. His current market value is registered at a mere £5.85m via Transfermarkt.

Ighalo was originally brought on board to provide cover for injured star Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial but he has provided club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer with plenty of rotation at the top of the pitch, allowing Martial to rest whilst Rashford continues to work on his recovery from a back injury.

Martial missed the Europa League tie on Thursday after sustaining nasty cuts to his shins during the 2-0 win over derby rivals Manchester City last weekend, which allowed Ighalo to start in Austria on Thursday.

Naturally loads of Manchester United fans have been reacting to the transfer link online with several supporters commenting that the Nigerian is better than former striker Romelu Lukaku.
