The former Premier League duo of Odion Jude Ighalo and Islam Slimani are on the radar of Manchester United who are desperate for a short-term replacement for Marcus Rashford.

The Manchester United topscorer has found the back of the net 19 times since this season started and his goals would be missed due to his absence from the team due to a back problem.

Manchester United are trying to sign a short-term him effective replacement for Marcus Rashford and a lot of strikers have been mentioned till now.

Leicester City loanee Islam Slimani has been able to resurrect his career at French Ligue 1 club AS Monaco while on loan from the Foxes.

The Algerian international striker has scored one goal in every other game for Monaco since the start of this campaign.

Around £4m would be enough for the player to cut short his loan spell in France and sign for Manchester United.

Retired Super Eagles striker Odion Ighalo plays his club football for Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League and he has emerged as a target for the Red Devils.

The 30-year-old has not spent a year at Shanghai Shenhua but that has not stopped the transfer speculation on his future in China amidst the Manchester United links.
