Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo is in talks with French giants Paris St Germain the player's representatives have confirmed.
PSG are looking to fill the void left by Edison Cavani and according to footmercato.com, Ighalo has been identified as an ideal solution.
“According to our information, the first contacts have been made. The Nigerian international striker… meets the profile sought, with experience, guaranteed quality (his performances with the Red Devils – 5 goals in 18 appearances in all competitions – are there to prove it) and an affordable transfer fee (contract until December 2021 in China).
“The first exchanges have taken place in recent days between PSG’s sporting director and the representatives of the Super Eagle, as one of them, Jean-Willy Ngoma, has confirmed to us,” the outlet claims.
Currently, PSG has only one main striker in Mauro Icardi, whose loan deal from Inter Milan was made permanent with a €50 million switch last month and they want a back up to the Argentine as they head into the new season.
Ighalo who has been at United since January on a loan deal is expected to leave the club early next year after his parent club Shanghai Shenhua in China signed Obafemi Martins as his replacement.
