According to Sky Sports, Odion Ighalo whose loan move expires on June 30th is expected back in China where he has an offer of £400,000 a week on his table to remain at the Chinese giants.

Ighalo’s current contract expires in December 2022, but Shanghai want to keep him until at least December 2024.

Manchester United, however, have the chance of turning his loan move to a permanent move if they pay at least £20m, the Chinese club’s valuation of their most-prized asset.
