‘It’s a yes’, ‘Absolutely’, some Man United fans want club to sign forward permanently

A selection of Manchester United fans have urged the club to reward Odion Ighalo with a permanent contract following the impressive beginning to his Red Devils career.

The 30-year-old made the switch from Shanghai Shenhua on a short-term loan in January and he has since contributed four goals and one assist from the club in all competitions.

Ighalo has been restricted to limited gametime off the bench in the Premier League but he has proved his worth in the Cup competitions by scoring all four of his goals from just three starts.

As such, he has already been voted as the club’s man of the match on a couple of occasions and some fans believe the striker deserves a permanent deal when his loan contract which expires in June.

Twitter Reaction:

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial are the first-choice options to lead the line under Solskjaer and Ighalo has definitely benefited from the former being out of action with a back injury.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dropped a huge hint that Ighalo could be signed permanently this summer and he certainly deserves the contract based on the performances since his mid-season move.

Of course, Ighalo may find it difficult to maintain the same consistency in the coming months but it is still worthwhile to secure his services, given he offers something different with his physical presence upfront.

The former Watford is valued at around £5.85m, as per Transfermarkt. He is definitely worth the price despite being in the latter stages of his professional playing career.
