Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo is being offered to Manchester United for a last-minute loan move.
The Watford man is currently at Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua and has enjoyed a successful time in the Far East.
But the Super League has been put off owing to the outbreak of coronavirus and GoalBall understand Ighalo is flying back to Europe today and could secure a move before Friday’s deadline.
The Nigeria international claimed last year he turned down an approach from Barcelona to be a back-up striker but could now be an option if the Red Devils do decide to press ahead.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’ side are short of striker options with Marcus Rashford out and Alexis Sanchez out on loan.
United legend Gary Neville urged Solskjaer to move for a striker before the deadline.
“I thought they would do at least two deals in this window, we’ll see what happens in the next 48 hours,” Neville said before the Carabao Cup clash with Manchester City.
“I think a striker is required now after what has happened with Marcus Rashford.”
