Manchester United supporters are disappointed with news that Striker Odion Ighalo would be leaving the club this Friday.
English tabloids reported that the on loan forward is set to return to his parent club Shanghai Shenhua after the Chinese Super league side turned down another loan approach from the Red Devils.
The player joined his boyhood team on a six-month loan deal back in January and instantly became a fans’ favorite after hitting four goals in eight appearances before the season was abandoned amidst coronavirus pandemic.
However United fans are disappointed about the potential departure of the Nigerian and many of them have taken to social media to express their gratitude to the Forward.
