Nigerian international striker Odion Ighalo has been given fresh hope to see more games and deliver what he has to offer for the club before he leaves in January.

The former Watford striker has not been favoured for games since the start of the season as he has only started in the Carabao Cup for the Red Devils. The situation has been made worst for him with the presence of Edison Cavani in the team. It is understood that the former PSG star would be favoured ahead of him.

According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Odion Ighalo still has a lot to offer to the club because he is a very important member of the Man United squad before he leaves.

Ighalo joined Man United from Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua and was impressive in his early days at the club with five goals in four games before the lockdown. He was forced to extend his loan deal with the club until January 31 but he has not been favoured for games.

Sadly the Nigerian international striker is expected to be named for a bench role in the game against French Ligue 1 outfit, Paris Saint Germain, despite the absence of Edison Cavani after he was ruled out by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
