Man Utd should be allowed to sign Ighalo replacement says Berbatov

Former Manchester United star player Dimitar Berbatov has spoken about the on going saga of Ighalo transfer, with the striker been force to return to Chinese league by is parent club Shanghai Shenhua.

Berbatov who played for both Tottenham and Manchester United, when speaking to Betfair said “United need to know what is happening with him. If they know they will lose him, they need to find someone else to replace him.

“If they haven’t already found a replacement, they need to find someone quickly, but if he stays his team-mates get on well with him and he has Premier League experience which is a big plus.

“For nine games, if they could come to an understanding and then he can go back, this would be the best option.

“If a team is losing a loan player because of the situation, the federation should allow a team to get someone else because of the situation.

“If Ighalo goes, United should be allowed to get a replacement, they are in a great place going into this final part of the season and they have a great chance of getting top four, but it will be very difficult as no one wants to join for nine games.

“The best scenario is for them to come to an agreement to keep Ighalo for the few games, otherwise they will lose out on a player that can score goals in the race for the top four.”

Ighalo’s current deal is set to expire on May 30 and United would have to negotiate fresh terms to extend his stay, but his parent club are insisting their player returns imminently with the Chinese Super League also planning to recommence in late June.

United have the option to make Ighalo’s move a permanent one but are unwilling to pay the necessary £20million for a player whose peak years are almost certainly behind him. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
