Manchester United and Nigerian forward, Odion Ighalo, has been said to have offers from Premier League clubs.

The former Watford goal poacher’s time at Old Trafford is coming towards an end and is now spoilt with numerous options to choose from as regards his next team.

The 31-year-old joined the Red Devils in January 2020 from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua on an initial six month deal but extended it by a further six months.

He enjoyed a brilliant start to life at Manchester but fell down the pecking order after the football restart.

The Ajegunle born admitted that he’s up to taking up new challenge and which may be in the MLS.

A host of clubs have contacted Ighalo’s representatives, but the former Super Eagles forward will prefer to remain in the Premier League.

One of Ighalo’s representatives told BBC Sport:
“I can confirm that some Premier League clubs, two teams outside of England and some clubs in the Middle East have made formal enquiries.

“Of course, he said [in an interview] that the MLS could be interesting, but that is just an option outside of the strong interest received so far.

“For now, he’s still a Man United player on loan from China where he still has a contract. He could stay in England where his family is based or try something new because he has many options to mull over.”

Ighalo has scored five goals in 23 appearance for the Ole Gunnar Solksjaer led side.

He believes there is still more to come from him on a competitive stage, but a contract in Asia that is due to run until December has to be taken into account when discussing any impending transfer.

“Any potential move after Manchester United definitely involves Shanghai Shenhua,” his representative added.

“There’s a slight sense of disappointment about the current season, but Ighalo remains grateful for the opportunity to have played for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“He wanted to end his time at United on a high by playing more for his boyhood club but he is grateful to the manager and proud of himself.”
