Man Utd target Ighalo as Rashford replacement

Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, has been linked with a move to the Old Trafford to fill the vacuum left by Marcus Rashford who sustained an injury last week in the club’s FA Cup win against Wolves.

Ighalo, who is currently with Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua, has two years left on his contract but could be on his back to England soon.

The former Watford player scored 17 goals in 55 Premier League appearances for the Hornets before securing a move to Chinese League One side Changchun Yatai in 2017.

The 31-year-old has scored 46 goals in 72 games in the Chinese Super league.

After their 2-0 defeat to Burnley at Old Trafford in midweek, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer indicated that the club – six points behind fourth-placed Chelsea after successive defeats – were in need of ‘quality’ signings, with both Paul Pogba and Rashford currently sidelined.

Speaking ahead of an FA Cup tie at Tranmere, Solskjaer insisted the club was still working on reinforcements in a “difficult” market.

“It’s not going to be a quick fix. And it’s not going to be like eight players in or 10 players in one transfer window,” he said.
