No deal? Man Utd fail to reach Ighalo agreement with Shanghai Shenhua

Manchester United have failed to find an agreement with Shanghai Shenhua over a deal for Odion Ighalo.

The loan deal with his parent club Shanghai Shenhua officially expired on Sunday night.

The Sun says a deal to extend his stay at Old Trafford has not yet been agreed.

United had doubts over the cost to keep the 30-year-old striker beyond the current terms.

Ighalo swapped the Chinese Super League for the Premier League in a shock deadline day loan deal back in January.

The Nigerian made a personal plea to Shanghai Shenhua to let him finish the season at Old Trafford, before returning to China.
