Odion Ighalo wants to see the season at Man United
LONDON: Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo he said Friday that he expects his loan agreement at Manchester united extends until Premier league The season is completed after the coronavirus blockade.
The 30-year-old moved to Old Trafford from the Chinese side of Shanghai Shenhua in January and has a contract until May 31.
Premier league bosses hope to resume the season in June but China's Super League is also edging towards the start of their season after it was delayed by COVID-19.
I would like to end the season if possible, Ighalo told BBC Sport.
He was in good shape, in good shape, scoring goals and now we have stopped for over a month. I have done my best and I hope to play again.
The team had a good momentum before the pandemic started. I am currently on loan, and this will shorten my time at the club.
United is reportedly interested in extending Ighalo's contract despite his attack concerns being alleviated during the shutdown.
The former Watford player has scored four times in eight games in all competitions for United.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team is fifth in the table with nine games remaining, chasing a place in the Champions League after an indifferent season.
Solskjaer said his players had been using GPS trackers as part of their training regimen as they prepare for a possible return to action.
It is not to follow or spy on them, but it has been so long, in this phase and in different stages we have added things and I think that the GPS has inspired and motivated some of them only to go a little more, said the Norwegian to the Football Focus program from the BBC.
We hope that we are getting closer and closer, we hope that this is the case anyway and it is time to increase a little.
Premier league clubs will meet on Monday to discuss their "Project Restart" plan.
