Shanghai Shenhua raises doubt over Ighalo’s permanent move to Man Utd

Shanghai Shenhua sporting director, Zhou Jun, has said Odion Ighalo would be a perfect fit at Manchester United.

However, Jun admits the Red Devils might have been affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, making it hard to sign the Nigerian on a permanent basis.

Ighalo joined United on a six-month loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua in the January transfer window.

The 30-year-old has gone on to score four goals from eight appearances across all competitions.

However, United have to pay the £20 million Shenhua are demanding for him, to keep him beyond this season.

Jun told “Realistically, Ighalo suits Manchester United. But many things are now uncertain due to COVID-19.

“Would Manchester United be willing to spend? Would their bid reach our expectation?”
