His performances have prompted talks of him getting a permanent contract at Manchester United although Shanghai Shenhua’s demand of a transfer fee in the excess of £20m might discourage the Premier League giants.

According to Daily Mail, Ighalo was initially valued at £15m which United were ready to pay but Shenhua has increased their demands after the striker’s fine performances.

The club is said to want their player back in time for the start of the 2020 Chinese Super League (CSL) season and will only allow him to remain beyond his loan deal on May 31 if they agree on a permanent deal with Manchester United.
