Ighalo set to sign permanently for Man Utd



Odion Ighalo’s agent Ladi Salami has said that his client is ‘very close’ to an agreement with Manchester United.

The Nigerian’s loan spell at Old Trafford expires this week and as yet United have not made a breakthrough in negotiations with parent club Shanghai Shenhua.

However, United had been confident of extending Ighalo’s deal but Shanghai favoured a permanent option and demanded in excess of £30m for the Nigerian.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed this morning that United remain in talks but Ighalo’s agent has revealed that an agreement is close.

“On the one hand, the Super Eagle [Nigerian] feels very good in Manchester with which it is very close to a salary agreement,” Ladi Salami told FootMercato.

“Negotiations with the Chinese are ongoing and are going well.  ‘On the other hand, in view of the latest regulations in force in the Middle Empire, it is almost impossible to offer such amounts”.
