MAKE OR BREAK WEEK FOR FC IGAHLO! Odion Ighalo’s stay at Manchester United likely to end this week!

Football is back on the menu boys! The signs coming out of the UK are generally heading in the right direction, with it looking more and more likely the English Premier League will return within the next 30 days.

That means we need to sort out the squad for the remainder of the season; forget the summer transfer window for now, it’s all about the final push. With the return from injury of Rashford and Pogba, the last outstanding item is sorting out the future of on-loan striker Odion Igahlo.

Parent club Shanghai Shenhua are recalling the striker at the end of the month, with United working feverishly to renegotiate the deal and keep him through the end of the summer at a minimum.

News over the weekend looked like a deal wouldn’t be found, with Shanghai apparently playing hardball with a $75M pound contract. However, news today looks like there is a deal to be had.

We’ll keep you sorted as this story continues to progress.


About Alex 87 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
