Manchester United’s on-loan striker Odion Ighalo has confirmed that talks have not got underway regarding extending his temporary deal with the club.
The Nigerian forward joined the Red Devils on a surprise loan deal in January from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua. Ighalo had made eight appearances in all competitions for the club before the suspension of football, scoring four goals.
He had become a firm favourite of Red Devils’ fans, with some even calling for his deal at the club to be extended but Ighalo has confirmed that no such talks have taken place as of yet.
“There is no offer on the table yet,” Ighalo told Elegbete TV.
“Because the season is still on and I’m yet to finish my loan deal. I don’t just take decisions alone in my life. I have a principle and I have a guideline for everything I do. I always pray to God to direct me.”
“I don’t just sit down and take decisions, and I don’t get carried away with whatever people say. I came to Manchester United to play for a pay cut because I wanted to. So anything could happen, but I want the season to finish and my loan to finish. Then I will see everything I have.
“You don’t just rush and do things: ‘I’m going here, I’m going here’. I have to sit down and finish the season well, sit down with my agent, see what’s on the ground: A, B, C, D, is on the ground. Okay we have to pick.”
