Ighalo has refused to discuss his Man Utd future amid the Covid-19 outbreak

Odion Ighalo has refused to be drawn into speculation surrounding his future at Manchester United, and believes football must come secondary to health amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

The 30-year-old has enjoyed a successful stint at Old Trafford since a surprise loan move was completed in January, but could find his time at his boyhood club cut short due to the world health pandemic.

Ighalo’s six-month loan spell could expire before action resumes, but the ex-Nigerian international is adamant that discussing his future would be insensitive.

After scoring four goals in all competitions since leaving Shanghai Shenhua, both Ighalo and United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer have hinted that the deal could be turned permanent.

But currently, the frontman’s terms are set to run out on June 30 and football appears increasingly unlikely to have restarted by that point.
