Martins Set To Replace Ighalo At Shanghai Shenhua

Nigerian striker Obafemi Martins is on the verge of a return to Shanghai Shenhua, Chinese media have reported, increasing the likelihood Odion Ighalo will make his stay at Manchester United a permanent one this summer.

Ighalo has made an impressive start to life at United, scoring four times in eight games since signing on loan until May 31 from the Chinese Super League club.

Martins, who was previously contracted to Shenhua from 2016 until the end of the 2018 season, was reported by Titan Sports to have arrived in China on Tuesday and was being lined up to replace Ighalo ahead of the Chinese Super League season.

China’s domestic league has yet to start the 2020 season after kick off was delayed indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak but speculation is mounting that the campaign will begin in late April or early May.

England’s Premier League has been suspended due to the pandemic and will not resume before April 30.

    Hehehehe…. I’m as safe as safety itself. But apparently, the place where you gamble to earn a living seems to be locked down, that’s why you haven’t had money to buy data all the while. Otherwise you would have felt my hale and hearty presence on CSN

      1xbet was still on last Saturday and Sunday if you played the #laligaSantanderChallenge my team Real Madrid led by Asensio clinched the title without stress so you should know that there was a weekend buffet for me.

        Oh…! What a pity.

        That is how you know people who truly depend on petty gambling and betting for survival. They even know the descriptions and fixtures of each and every one.
