The Red Devils centre-forward Odion Ighalo has impressed since joining on loan in the winter transfer window. Man United added Nigeria international on loan in January and the striker has impressed since making the switch to Theatre of Dreams.
Odion has netted four times in his eight games for Man United. And Ighalo may have solved a problem for the Red Devils which means they can hold off signing another centre-forward in the summer.
Man United will likely make Ighalo a permanent fixture when the transfer window re-opens. That would leave the Norwegian manager with Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Ighalo as frontline options.
And the impressive displays of the new signing could mean they bring Erling Braut Haaland to Theatre of Dreams in the future. That’s because it would give Ed Woodward and co time to assess their options.
It would also mean Man United resist the temptation of chasing Tottenham striker Harry Kane this summer. The Norwegian manager wants to bolster the front-line during the summer transfer window.
England international is reportedly considering his future at the club but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy would demand a huge fee. Meanwhile, the Nigerian striker has recounted his childhood days watching Man United and becoming a fan.
