Ighalo’s agent talks about the player's possible destinations after Manchester.

Odion Ighalo’s

agent says that the Nigerian striker is thinking about the offers he has received. The player is thinking about his future after his loan spell at Manchester United.

One of Ighalo’s representatives has told BBC Sport:

“I can confirm that some Premier League clubs, two teams outside of England and some clubs in the Middle East have made formal enquiries.

“Of course, he said [in an interview] that the MLS could be interesting, but that is just an option outside of the strong interest received so far.

“For now, he's still a Man United player on loan from China where he still has a contract. He could stay in England where his family is based or try something new because he has many options to mull over.

And about the possibility of a move to Asia he added:

“Any potential move after Manchester United definitely involves Shanghai Shenhua,

“There's a slight sense of disappointment about the current season, but Ighalo remains grateful for the opportunity to have played for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“He wanted to end his time at United on a high by playing more for his boyhood club but he is grateful to the manager and proud of himself.”
