Shanghai Shenhua will allow Ighalo to stick with Man Utd if...

Shanghai Shenhua are willing to allow Odion Ighalo to see out the Premier League season with loan club Manchester United.

His contract is due to expire on Sunday.

Talks are ongoing over whether he will remain in England or leave to head back to China, but Sky Sports are reporting that his parent club have come up with a solution.

It has been reported that Shanghai Shenhua will allow Ighalo's loan deal to be extended as far as January, but only if the player ties down his future in China until 2024 in a deal worth £400,000 a week.

The striker is currently under contract until 2022 in Shanghai but the club are desperate to top his deal up with a further two years before they allow him to stay - and potentially impress - in the Premier League.
