Manchester United make Odion Ighalo summer transfer admission

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken out on Odion Ighalo, who joined the Red Devils on loan from Shanghai Greenland Shenhua during January transfer window. Ighalo has made 5 appearances for Manchester United so far during this season with having scored one goal. "He's here on merit," Solskjaer told Sky Sports. "He's here because he's a goal scorer and he's a different type of a striker for us. "Of course we might get to the summer and 'yeah we want to extend this' - who knows? "He's come in as a breath of fresh air and he's had chances - in his five minutes against Chelsea he had a great chance. "Against Brugge, he scored. Against Watford, he had a great chance. Against Everton, he's there, he had a chance but it was a very good save. "He doesn't miss the target very often. So it's about having that for Anthony [Martial], Marcus [Rashford] and Mason [Greenwood] to learn. "That's where the sharks are swimming. It's comfortable outside the box where you can have a few shots, but it's in there where it might be a bit tougher and you might get hurt but that's where you get your goals." source - Manchester Evening News
