Manchester United are ready to sign Odion Ighalo for up to £15million this summer following his impressive performances at the Premier League club.
The good news comes days after it was revealed that Shanghai Shenhua are prepared to sell Odion Ighalo and have put a £15m valuation on the player.
The striker scored four goals in eight appearances since his arrival from Shanghai Shenhua in January.
The ex-Watford frontman, Ighalo’s temporary switch from the Chinese Super League was due to end on June 31. Shanghai did not ask for a loan fee in January because United agreed to contribute £130,000 a week towards Ighalo’s wages of £300,000 a week.
Earlier this month, Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted that United were interested in making Ighalo’s move permanent.
‘He has qualities we saw in him that we needed. And we will still need those qualities next season — so let’s see what we will do.’
