Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo has confirmed that he is interested in making a move to the Major League Soccer in America as his contract at Manchester United is coming to an end.
Although the former Super Eagles striker has not played any Premier League game this season for Manchester United, but Ighalo is still happy with the chance to be at Old Trafford.
During his days as a kid on the streets of Lagos, Odion Ighalo used to wear Manchester United shirt to play football and had the dreams of playing for the Premier League side.
Luckily for the former Prime FC of Osogbo star, Manchester United moved for his signing in January 2020 following the injury Marcus Rashford sustained.
Upon his arrival at Old Trafford, Odion Ighalo performed wonderfully well in the Europa League and also in the Cup games even though he did not start any Premier League game.
According to the report on Manchester Evening, Ole Solskjaer has confirmed that Odion Ighalo’s contract will not be extended at Old Trafford.
Odion Ighalo is now expected to make a return to his Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua later this month.
“I have been watching MLS and the league is doing well and I would like to play in the MLS.
“I have to wait for offers and if the opportunity arises, I will take it because the league is doing well and it is a good life and I would love it.
“I would like to go there if an opportunity arises. Being an experienced player, going there, doing well. It is an opportunity if it comes for me.”

Earlier, Bioreports had reported how former Nigerian international Ifeanyi Udeze lamented the treatment meted out to former Super Eagles star Odion Ighalo at English club Manchester United.
According to the former defender, Ighalo’s situation at the Premier League club is becoming an insult following the 31-year-old’s lack of playing time.
Ighalo’s who had a sensational start at the Old Trafford club scoring five goals in his first four starts has found it hard to break into the first team under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Despite the manager stating that the Nigerian will be involved during their FA Cup clash against the player’s former club Watford, he was yet again benched, a situation that infuriated Udeze.
