Transfer: Ighalo to join Saudi Arabian side, Al-Shabab


Former Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo, has agreed to a permanent deal with Saudi Arabian side, Al-Shabab, Sky Sports reports.

Ighalo’s move to Al-Shabab is subject to passing medical and agreeing personal terms.

His loan spell at Manchester United from Shanghai Shenhua came to an end on January 31, 2021.

The Nigerian forward was due to return to his parent club Shanghai Shenhua, but they have given him permission to speak to Al-Shabab.

The transfer window in Saudi Arabia will be closed on February 7, 2021.

Ighalo netted five goals in 23 appearances in all competitions for Man United during his loan spells at Old Trafford.

He only made two starts this season since Edinson Cavani joined Man United from PSG in October.

The 31-year-old confirmed his departure from Man United in an emotional farewell message last week Tuesday.
