Odion Ighalo before joining Manchester United on loan from Shanghai

Man Utd star Odion Ighalo makes personal request amid uncertain Old Trafford future, but he has requested Shanghai Shenhua allow him to see out the season at Old Trafford, according to report. 

The highest goalscorer at the last African Cup of Nation in Egypt, joined from the Chinese Super League side on transfer deadline day. And the Red Devils are keen for him to stay at the Theatre of Dreams, with the 30-year-old impressing so far.

Manchester United were slammed by many within the football world when, after being snubbed by Bournemouth over Josh King, they signed Ighalo on transfer deadline day. He was written off, having spent the last few years strutting his stuff in the Chinese Super League.

Ighalo has justified United's faith in him, scoring four goals from eight appearances before stopping football activities due to coronavirus outbreak, Two of those came against Derby in the FA Cup, while Club Brugge and LASK have also been pushed aside in the Europa League.

The Nigerian's short time at Old Trafford is set to be over come Sunday, with United battling to extend his loan deal.

Manchester Evening News reported that Ighalo has now intervened, asking Shanghai to allow him to finish the current campaign at the club he grew up supporting as a boy. It's said that he's asked his parent club to allow him stay at United until the current season is finished.

He's reportedly fully aware that this is probably a once in a lifetime opportunity for him to represent the club, he has supported right from childhood which means so much to him.

Ighalo grew up supporting United as a child in Nigeria, with the striker previously snapped wearing their blue shirt from the 2005/2006 season. Confidence is high within the 30-year-old's that an agreement with Shanghai would be struck.

Talks have supposedly been described as 'much more positive than they have been' - which will boost the former Watford man's cause but Shanghai would prefer for United to sign Ighalo permanently, rather than on loan.

Manchester United Manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself also wants to extend the loan agreement having been delighted by the former Super Eagles striker's form at the Theatre of Dreams.
