PLENTY TO SMILE ABOUT! Man United given Ighalo loan boost as Shanghai soften stance! IGAHLO FC!

Who doesn’t love our Nigerian striker Igahlo FC. With a make or break week regarding his future at United, the latest news making the rounds is promising:

Shanghai Shenhua have softened their stance on extending Odion Ighalo‘s loan with Manchester United but time is against the Premier League side, sources have told ESPN.

United want to keep Ighalo for the remainder of the season but privately insist the “ball is in Shanghai’s court” with the delayed Chinese Super League season set to start in June.

The initial deal agreed in January is due to expire this weekend and the two clubs will have to reach a fresh agreement for the striker to stay at Old Trafford.

Shanghai have been reluctant to sanction an extension but negotiations are ongoing.

News looks promising! We’ll keep you posted as D-Day approaches!

VIVA IGAHLO!

About Alex 44 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.
