<p class="">Odion Ighalo could be unable to finish the Premier League season with Manchester United. </p>

<h2>Manchester United are willing to let Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo return to China after Sunday, May 31, 2020, the day his loan deal runs out. </h2>

<p class="">Ighalo, a loan signing from <strong>Chinese Super League</strong> (CSL) side Shanghai Shenhua was brought in to cover for the loss of <strong>Marcus Rashford </strong>until the end of the season. </p>

<p class="">The season, however, had to be suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic to bring complications to loan deals which were supposed to run out on May 31. </p>

<p class="">With that complication coupled with the return of Rashford who has resumed training ahead of the restart of the Premier League, United are willing to let Ighalo return to China. </p>

<p class="">According To<strong><em> Sky Sports</em></strong> reporter <strong>James Cooper</strong>, Manchester United would love to keep him until the end of the season but are not ready to meet the demands of his parent club. </p>

<p class="">“<em>As far as Ighalo goes, I think there is a relaxed mood from Manchester United</em>,” Sky Sports reporter Cooper said outside the club’s Carrington training complex.</p>

<p class="">“<em>The facts of the matter are that his contract comes to end next Friday, May 31.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“There is a will from Manchester United to keep the player, I think equally Shanghai Shenhua would like the player back in China playing for them.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“The relaxed attitude that comes from Manchester United, is that Marcus Rashford is now fit and so there is less need for Ighalo.</em></p>

<p class=""><em>“But I think all things being equal United would like to keep him</em>.”</p>

<p class="">According to an earlier report, <a href="https://www.pulse.ng/sports/football/odion-ighalo-chinese-club-shanghai-shenhua-want-at-least-pound20m-for-striker/z0z0bf0" id="b0ffb855-c75d-4e28-9367-348f36d7b7a8">Shenhua are demanding at least £20million for Ighalo</a> and want to agree on a permanent contract before they can allow the striker to stay at the club beyond May 31. </p>

<p class="">United, however, are not ready to give in to those demands which would see Ighalo return to China. </p>

<p class="">Ighalo has four goals in eight games for Manchester United. </p>
