Man Utd forward Odion Ighalo was surprisingly linked with French champions PSG recently, and a recent report has shed light on the player and club’s stance regarding the rumours.
The Nigerian was a shock loan signing for The Red Devils in the 2020 winter window.
His impressive immediate form delighted manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, with Ighalo earning an extension to his loan until January 2021.
However, a recent French report suggested he had become a transfer target for PSG after Edinson Cavani’s free agent exit.
With the veteran Uruguayan no longer around, depth at centre-forward had become thin in Paris.
Mauro Icardi and Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting remain the club’s only genuine options up top. While Ighalo’s adaptability and veteran presence had been cited as desirable for the Parisians.
Now, The MEN have shed light on the situation by insisting Man Utd have ‘no intention’ of cutting his loan stint short.
Further to that notion, Ighalo is described as having ‘no interest’ in the switch. Man Utd are also described as the Nigerian’s dream club amid his late career renaissance.
Their article cite sources claiming there is ‘no truth’ behind the PSG rumours, thereby putting an end to the speculation.
“No-brainer” why Inter star left Man Utd
Ashley Young has revealed that it was a “no-brainer” to leave Manchester United for Inter Milan in January.
Young was the captain at Old Trafford, but his place in the starting lineup wasn’t guaranteed. Therefore, he decided to move on for a fresh challenge in Serie A.
The wing-back made 18 appearances in Serie A after joining Inter, as they finished as runners up to Juventus.
Young has also played three times in the Europa League for his new club – a competition in which he could feasibly face his old side in the final.
Now, the 35-year-old – who contributed four league goals and four assists for Inter in 2020 – has revealed more behind his decision to leave Man Utd.
