Ighalo

Apparently offered 400k a week to remain at his current club. Absolute madness.

Who could blame him for staying there now?

Can’t imagine us offering much more than a quarter of that.

Why would they pay that much money for someone who used to sit on there bench most of time?

This seems like agent mischief. United want to sign him but he clearly wants a better wage packet.

15 starts in 17 games isn't really sitting on the bench most of the time is it

The reason they'll offer so much is he's been successful so far at United... Albeit for a short period

But his profile will be higher commercially there atm so it'll be seen as a big feather in the cap for both club and league if he stays in China

He's already on 350k a week i think over there... It's not a massive jump

You'd think that Ighalo would have significantly higher earning opportunities through sponsorships / endorsements if he stayed at United. So the gap in overall earnings could be narrower than it looks when you only consider salaries.

I get what your saying, in context, but how crazy does that sound? 50k a week is not a lot of money? Can you imagine that hitting your account every Friday? What a difference that would make for you, your family and friends,
I’d still drink real ale & eat curries though lol don’t think I’d develop a taste for lobster & caviar washes down with Don Perignon, I’d be more Del Boy though lol

In context yes but when you earn that much money what is 50k really?

Why would you even post that?

Makes sense. Now that he has played for United he has more star status than before which the chinese fans will lap up.

All respective parties have to find out when their respective leagues will resume before any big decision is made.

At the moment I believe that Ighalo still wants to play for us - albeit maybe for a little more money. But if the £400 k a week offer remains the only viable one in the end, then no one can really blame him for taking it up - whenever the CSL resumes.

In the end, United would be suicidal to match anywhere near that offer (if true) regardless of his usefulness to us.

Personally, I hope he chooses us. But I wouldn’t be distraught if he left in the end. Just a little fecking gutted.

ighalo was already on 350k in china so them offering 400k in relative term is not as bizarre asit sounds

he was willingly to take a pay cut to join utd. if he goes back to china it would be because of exra 50k they are offering .
