Man Utd yet to make Ighalo offer to Shanghai Shenhua

Manchester United are yet to make an offer to Shanghai Shenhua about extending the stay of Odion Ighalo.

The striker's loan will expire on May 31.

United remain in talks to extend the 30-year-old's stay at Old Trafford, but the Chinese side will only agree to a permanent deal or an extension to his loan that incorporates an obligation to buy, says Sky Sports.

Ighalo would be likely to cost upwards of £20m.

As things stand, Shenhua expect Ighalo to have returned in time for the resumption of the Chinese Super League season, expected to be at the end of June or beginning of July.
