Premier League team Manchester United in last-minute loan extension talks for Jude Odion Ighalo’s parent club Shanghai Shenhua according to new reports.
Jude Odion Ighalo arrived at Man United on an initial loan deal during the winter transfer window, the deal loan deal is set to expire at the end of May, but his playing time had been curtailed by the postponement of football due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
With the Premier League set to resume this month, reports in England say Manchester United executive chairman Ed Woodward is in frantic talks with Shanghai Shenhua hoping a deal can be agreed to keep Ighalo at Old Trafford until the end of the year.
According to the reports that emanated Sunday, Jude Odion Ighalo’s parent club Shanghai Shenhua are interested in negotiating a new loan contract with Manchester United after being paid £3m for his initial loan deal. Negotiations are now centred around an extension until the new year, rather than just until the end of the current campaign.
According to goal.com ”while sources say there is hope and confidence a deal can be found between all parties, the extension has yet to be fully agreed upon as the deadline ticks closer.”
