Odion Ighalo wants to spend “the rest of his life” at Manchester United, according to the Nigerian’s personal trainer.
The 30-year-old joined the Red Devils on loan during the January transfer window and scored four times in his first eight appearances for the club before the majority of football across the globe was called to a halt.
As it stands, Ighalo is due to return to parent club Shanghai Shenhua at the end of May, but United will allegedly attempt to extend the agreement if the 2019-20 campaign resumes.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is also believed to be weighing up a permanent move, meanwhile, and the forward’s personal trainer has said that the Nigerian wants to finish his career at Old Trafford.
“He’s a wonderful athlete, I’ve never seen someone more passionate about their job than him,” Ekemini Ekerette told Goal. “I think he’s in excellent physical condition. He loves the game. He just wants to train. Even if the league wasn’t going to play in the next three months he would keep training every day. He is so disciplined. (Text, photo by Guardian)
