Manchester United would like to extend Odion Ighalo's stay with his loan agreement with Shanghai Shenhua, which ends in late May.
An extension would depend on the situation with the Chinese Super League club, as they approach the start of the season in the country where Covid-19 originated in late 2019.
Ighalo made his shocking change to the Shanghai Shenhua deadline in January and the former Watford striker impressed the faithful at Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old scored four goals in three matches for the club he has supported since childhood, but the addition to eight matches was complicated by the coronavirus crisis.

The Premier League has been suspended since March 13 – the day after he scored an impressive LASK goal in the Europa League – and the game is unlikely to resume until mid-June.
Ighalo's loan contract expires on May 31 and, although injury problems are lessened, United is open to extending his stint at Old Trafford.
& # 39; Project Restart & # 39; is bubbling up in the Premier League and the AP understands that United has told its players currently abroad to return to the country before a possible resumption of training.
