The agent of former Nigeria international Odion Ighalo has confirmed Manchester United and Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua have edged closer to agreeing on extending the forward’s loan stint.
Negotiations between United and Ighalo’s parent club are continuing and a deal is expected to be reached on Sunday, the day when the player’s loan spell expires following his Premier League return on the final day of the January transfer window.
According to Ighalo’s agent Atta Aneke “We are nearing an agreement with Manchester United on an extended loan. The agreement will mean that Ighalo will remain with them until January 2021.”
