Ex-Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo has reportedly been told that he will have to accept a £200,000-a-week pay cut if he is to join Manchester United on a permanent basis.
The 30-year-old has made a solid start to life at Old Trafford after arriving in a shock loan move from Shanghai Shenhua in January.
Ighalo has scored four goals in eight matches for the Red Devils and has hinted that he would be interested in staying at Old Trafford beyond the end of the season.
According to the Daily Star, however, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will not match the £300,000 a week Shanghai were paying the Nigerian striker before he returned to England three months ago.
The report indicates that Ighalo, who has previously represented Watford in the Premier League, is instead likely to be paid no more than £100,000.
