Ighalo linked with surprise move

Ligue 1

With his loan at Manchester United set to expire in the coming months, Odion Ighalo could soon find himself playing alongside Neymar and Kylian Mbappe after being linked with a move to Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain. 

Ighalo is currently on loan at Old Trafford from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, but is expected to leave Old Trafford upon the conclusion of his short-term deal with the club in January 2021.

The former Nigeria international looked set to return to China at the end of his stay in Manchester but new reports suggest that a surprising move to France could be on the cards instead, with reigning French champions PSG said to be courting his services. 

According to Foot Mercato, the Parisians have identified Ighalo as a cost-effective replacement for record goalscorer Edinson Cavani, who departed at the end of June following the expiration of his contract.

It is reported that PSG have already opened talks with Ighalo's agent, but it remains uncertain as to whether or not they will make a formal approach for his signature before the end of the current European campaign.
