Solskjaer Confirms Extension Of Ighalo’s Contract At Man Utd

Extension Ighalo’s Contract Man Utd

Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo’s contract with Manchester United is very likely to see an extension over the summer, says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The 30-year-old frontman linked up with the Red Devils during the January transfer window on an initial loan agreement.

Solskjaer is willing to consider an extension of contract in an interview with Sky Sports: “It doesn't hurt [living the dream] but he's here on merit, he's here because he is a goalscorer and a different type of striker for us.

“We might get to the summer and think we want to extend this, who knows?

“He's come in as a breath of fresh air as well. He had chances in his five minutes against Chelsea, he scored against Bruges, he had chances against Watford, he had a very good save [from a shot] against Everton – there have been good saves, he doesn't miss the target very often.

“Even for Anthony (Martial), Mason (Greenwood) and Marcus (Rashford) to learn that it is where the sharks are swimming.

‘’It's comfortable outside the box and you can have a few shots. It's in there where it might be a bit tougher and you might get hurt – that's where you get goals.”
