Ighalo set for Manchester United exit as loan extension talks stall



The forward's deal at Old Trafford only runs until May 30, and his parent club Shangahi Shenhua want him back to play in the Chinese Super League

Odion Ighalo is set to leave Manchester United this week unless there is a last-minute breakthrough in negotiations with his parent club Shanghai Shenhua.

The 30-year-old arrived at Old Trafford in January on a loan deal until the end of the season, with his his short-term contract set to expire on May 30.

The suspension of football due to Covid-19 and the consequent delay to ending the season has seen all Premier League teams agree that clubs can temporarily extend contracts of players whose deals are coming to an end this summer.
