Manchester United have reportedly agreed a deal in principle to sign former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, on a six-month deal, according to The Express.
United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has been desperate to sign a striker on a temporary deal before the 11.00pm deadline on Friday, as short term replacement for injured Marcus Rashford.
The Old Trafford side had launched a £20 million bid for Bournemouth forward, Joshua King, last night, but the bid was rejected by the club, which prompted a move for Ighalo, who has also been on their radar as plan B, the report quotes Sky Sports as saying.
The player is also said to be interested in a move back to Europe.
It has now been reported that that a deal has been agreed in principle for the former Watford hitman.
Ighalo is said to be in pre-season training with his club, Shanghai Shenhua, though the Chinese Super League has currently been suspended, due to the outbreak of the coronavirus.
