Former Super Eagles forward Odion Ighalo has announced his departure from dream club Manchester United.
Ighalo signed for United on loan from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January 2020. He went on to score five goals in 23 appearances for the club.
The 31-year-old striker’s loan spell had been due to expire at the end of the month.
“It’s so hard to see this dream come to an end.
‘But I give God the glory for helping me fulfil this lifelong dream of putting on a Manchester United shirt as a player and represent this great club, it was indeed an honour I will forever cherish and be grateful for.
‘To the manager I say thank you for trusting and believing in me when many did not. To my amazing team-mate I will miss you guys, it was always fun… and I pray we win the league and FA Cup this year.
Ighalo scored five goals across 23 appearances in all competitions.
