Ighalo hopes for MLS move

Manchester United forward Odion Ighalo is hoping for a move to the MLS when his loan spell at Old Trafford comes to an end on January 31st.

The Nigerian moved to United last January from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, initially for a four month spell, although that was later extended because of the global pandemic.

However, the arrival of Edinson Cavani in the summer means that any chance that the loan will be extended for a further period are now slim, or non-existent.

The 31-year old former Watford forward, who was brought in after an injury to Marcus Rashford, initially made a good start last season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, scoring five times in 19 appearances.

This time round though, first-team opportunities have been much harder to come by, although Odion remains philosophical and says that is the nature of football. He says it has been an honour to play for United, and now he is  looking forward.
