Odion Ighalo pictured at Manchester United training base for first session

Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has been pictured arriving for his first session with the rest of his Manchester United teammates at the club’s training base of Carrington on Sunday morning.

The January signing has been training away from the club's Carrington complex since signing on loan from the Chinese Super League amid fears surrounding the coronavirus.

The pictures show Ighalo being driven at the club's training ground for the first time ahead of an initial session with the rest of the United squad before traveling down to London.

United manager Solskjaer said on Friday that the striker will travel with the team to Chelsea but refuted claims that the striker would be ready for the game.

“I never said he (Ighalo) was going to be ready to play on Monday. He’ll be involved with us and he’ll travel down with us and, obviously, now he’s out of that two-week period of precaution and it’s a precaution we’ve made."

Ighalo hasn’t played competitively since December 6 but Solskjaer believes he can still give United the edge against fourth-placed Chelsea.
