Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that the club is in dialogue with Chinese
Premier League club Shanghai Shenhua to extend the loan deal of Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo.
Ighalo joined the Red Devils on loan in January which will expire on May 31.
The 30-year-old is expected to return to Shanghai Shenhua next week for the start of the new Chinese Super League season unless an agreement can be reached to keep him till the end of the season.
“At the moment nothing’s been agreed yet,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
“The loan deal went to the end of May now, so obviously he’s supposed to be going back.

“We’re in dialogue and hopefully [he can stay]. They’ve been great towards us, his club, and allow him to play for his dream club.
“It’s been been a dream for him and hopefully he can finish off what he started, maybe with a trophy or two.
“Their league is going to start soon so we are just waiting to see.”
Ighalo has scored four goals in eight appearances for Manchester United.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved. The information contained in Completesports.com may not be published, broadcast, rewritten, or redistributed without the prior written authority of Completesports.com.
