Manchester United have announced their second signing of the winter transfer window in the shape of retired Super Eagles of Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo.

His transfer was confirmed by the Premier League giants towards the end of the January transfer window on Friday night.

Odion Ighalo has joined Manchester United whom he has supported since he was a young boy. He has signed on loan from Chinese Super League (CSL) club Shanghai Shenhua for the remainder of this season with no options to buy.

Manchester United were linked with a lot of strikers in the last hours of the recently concluded transfer window before they settled for ex-Watford striker Odion Ighalo.

Bournemouth striker Joshua King, AS Monaco star Islam Slimani and Norwich City hitman Teemu Pukki were all targets for the Red Devils who were looking for an immediate replacement for Marcus Rashford in their attack.

England international Rashford was in very good form for Manchester United before his back injury during the FA Cup clash with Wolves last month.

The back injury won’t let him return to the pitch to play for Manchester United until next month.

He scored 19 goals this season before that unfortunate injury against the Midlands club.
