Odion Ighalo

Apparently he’s on the verge of joining us from Shanghai Shenhua.

Here is his Watford goal record...

82 apps, 33 goals.

Anyone excited about this?

Didn't realise he was top scorer at the ACON. Promising.

Tbf those goals were against Burundi, Cameroon and Algeria

It’s a strange one. He could be totally awful or might take this once in a lifetime opportunity and smash it

Cameroon and Algeria aren't bad sides.

Dunno, they didn’t make the last World Cup.

As long as he’s sharp and can cause cb’s problems physically and in behind he could prove useful for the rest of the season.

Is Chelsea likely to be his first game?

He’ll probably be injured.

Ighalo's 'homecoming' to Manchester

John Bennett
BBC World Service
Back in 2015 after Watford’s promotion from the Championship Odion Ighalo told me where he was most looking forward to playing in his first Premier League season. No hesitation: “Old Trafford. It’ll be a dream come true to play against Manchester United, the team I supported in my youth.” Little did he know what would happen five years later.
I’m genuinely happy for him because Odion is one of the nicest, most genuine players I’ve met in football. Someone who does a huge amount of charity work for people in Nigeria. He’s also still a very talented striker.
I admit it’s a left field move by United and I’m also sure that you’ll have read and heard all the negatives so to balance things out let me give you some positives: Ighalo is a natural number 9 and a natural goalscorer with pace and power. Barcelona tried to sign him just 12 months ago because they wanted that type of player. He turned them down.
He is a very strong character too. The Nigerian got a lot of criticism back home after missing chances when the Super Eagles got knocked out by Argentina at the last World Cup (including abuse aimed at his family) but he came back stronger to finish top scorer not only in Africa Cup of Nations qualifying but also at the tournament itself, ahead of the likes of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Riyad Mahrez.
Ighalo’s proven in the Premier League and will be able to hit the ground running fitness permitting. He’ll also be a very popular team-mate, who will give his all to be a success at United. Nobody will work harder.
It’s almost like a homecoming too. Ighalo’s family has been based in Manchester. It’s a fairytale move for the United fan from Lagos. Now let’s see if, not for the first time in his career, he can prove the doubters wrong.

Odion Ighalo needs one PL goal to go level with Jesse Lingard
----------------------------------------------------------------------
City needed one to go level with ten man United the other night but couldn’t manage it, at home
----------------------------------------------------------------------
I’ll just have to console myself with yet another trip to Wembley

I'm seeing a lot of negativity towards him, He's on loan, I can deal with that, We needed a striker, I hope he proves his doubters wrong as well.
