Man Utd In Talks To Sign Ex Super Eagles Forward by reportminds: 9:14am On Jan 25, 2020
Manchester United football club of England is in talks to sign Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo according to new reports.

The English club is reportedly 'desperate' for a striker following a three months injury to Marcus Rashford and a shock 2-0 loss to Burnley on Wednesday.

Man U had made former Solksjaer player, Erling Braut Haaland, one of their top targets ahead of January, but a deal broke down because of doubts surrounding the structure of the deal and the agent Mino Raiola's plan to rip off the club in any future sale of the player.

But according to Sky Sports on Friday, United have made shock approaches for two former Premier League players Odion Ighalo and Islam Slimani and want them either of them on 6 month loan deals. The club has included the names of both strikers on a their transfer sheet according to Sky Sports.

Slimani is a Leicester player but is on loan at Monaco while Ighalo plays in the Chinese league with Shanghai Shenhua.

If Manchester United sign Ighalo, he'll be the club's first senior Nigerian player in history.

Speaking after the 2-0 defeat at Liverpool last Sunday, Solskjaer said he'll consider temporary solutions in the loan market.

“It’s just an unfortunate situation we are in,” he told Sky Sports.

“It might be because the window is open, that we look at some short-term options.
