REVEALED: The total outlay for Man Utd after agreeing Ighalo extension

Manchester United will spend a total of £10.5m on keeping Odion Ighalo at the club until January 31.

United agreed a last-minute extension of Ighalo's loan with parent club Shanghai Shenhua.

The first loan deal, which commenced in January, expired on Sunday.

The Daily Mailsays United have agreed to pay £130,000 of his £300,000-a-week contract.

They will also fork out another £6m in loan fees to Shenhua.

There is also no obligation or option to make Ighalo's transfer permanent in the new loan deal.

30-year-old Ighalo scored four goals in eight appearances for United before games were suspended.
