The 20-times Premier League champions have been linked with some strange names throughout the transfer window including former Premier League striker Islam Slimani and Bournemouth’s Josh King.

Now, they have finally finished their search for a striker with the move for 30-year old Ighalo. The former Watford striker was playing for the Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua since February 2019.

During his time at Watford between 2015 and 2017, Ighalo netted 17 goals in 55 appearances in the Premier League. He will now make a return to the Premier League with a loan deal until the end of this season.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer commented on the Nigerian striker: “Odion is an experienced player. He will come in and give us an option of a different type of center-forward for the short spell he’s staying with us. A great lad and very professional, he will make the most of his time here.”
