Will Manchester United make Ighalo loan deal permanent in the summer?

Odion Ighalo could stay at Manchester United beyond his loan deal after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hinted he could swap for the Nigerian this summer. 

Ighalo was on target on Thursday night as United beat LASK 5-0 in the Europa League. The Nigerian grabbed the opener for the Red Devils with a brilliant left-footed strike despite being surrounded by defenders. Solskjaer was full of praise after the clash and hinted that a summer move could be well on the cards. 

"The boys were fantastic, they deserve a lot of praise and credit for the way they went about the job. There was a lot of quality in our finishing, some fantastic goals and a lot of football we should be proud of," he said. 

"He’s very good with his back to goal and a good link player, but the best thing about him is his personality. He’s got the lot, really. He had three touches before he hit the ball and all were high quality to make space for himself. The strike on the half-volley was great timing, no-one would have saved that," he added. 

The Red Devils will host LASK in the return leg next Thursday though due to coronavirus concerns it remains unclear if the match will push through after the first leg played behind closed doors.
