Stunned MU last minute winter transfer

In the last minutes of the winter transfer period, MU had an additional rookie from China surprisingly.

Before the end of the winter transfer window, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer announced that MU will definitely have a new striker but did not mention any specific name. Therefore, the fans of “Red Devils” were very anxious to wait and in the end, MU also added a goalscorer in the last minutes.

According to the Daily Mail, MU has completed the loan agreement to striker Odion Ighalo from China’s Shanghai Chinese Club for £ 3 million within 6 months. The Nigerian is still in China and will be in Manchester in the next two days to complete the deal.

Odion Ighalo is 30 years old and still has 2 years of contract with Than Hoa Shanghai with a salary of 300,000 £ / week. However, MU will only have to pay 1/3 of the salary of the Nigerian striker during this player at Old Trafford. It is worth noting that this contract does not include a definitive purchase term after the loan expires.

This is considered a “fire contract” of Solskjaer after Marcus Rashford long-term injury. MU had to accept the risk when no medical examination before completing the deal. However, the extremely Norwegian teacher did not have to make this decision.

Earlier, MU was “screaming” to 40 million pounds when asked to buy Joshua King from Bournemouth. The striker only got 3 goals, 2 assists after 16 appearances for Bournemouth this season but the £ 20 million proposals of the “Red Devils” was considered a “joke” by the Dean Court team.

Odion Ighalo has played in the English Premier League under Watford shirt and scored 40 goals in 100 appearances. It was not an impressive achievement, but it was not so bad. The last season played for Than Hoa Shanghai, the Nigerian striker got 10 goals in 19 appearances.

Another interesting information is that Tottenham also contacted Ighalo in the last minutes. Jose Mourinho also wants more people in the attack after Harry Kane is injured. However, the Nigerian striker refused because MU is a team this player admired from childhood.

MU choose strikers for the winter

Having clarified the key goals of MU for the position of the winter striker, the Red Devils have determined to bring back at least one name, the fans also make their own interesting votes.

MU has targeted 3 key targets for the striker position. Faced with injury and poor performance of the attack, the Red Devils are determined to bring at least one name right this winter.

The list of strikers MU has many choices, but shortened the quality to only three names including: Dembele (Lyon), Mandzukic (Juventus), Erling Haaland (Salzburg).

Too eager to expect the intestine team to recruit the new striker, the Red Devils fans quickly voted. Specifically, MU gave up 39% of the votes for the French striker Dembele. Dembele followed in second place was the surprising name Erling Haaland with 34%. Haaland has been a fairly hot name recently. Meanwhile, veteran striker Mario Mandzukic received the lowest votes with 18%. Another unexpected name that MU fans “choose to send gold” is the striker Callum Wilson of Bournemouth. The English striker has a very impressive scoring record this season.

Dembele is one of the Red Devils’ long-term goals, while Mandzukic’s free contract (aspiring to leave Juventus) is said to be attractive to the potential he brings, compared to what MU must give up. out. Meanwhile, Erling Haaland is the name that brings the most interesting. The 1999-born star of Solsa in Molde, he came to light from the U20 World Cup with a top scorer record, scoring 9 goals in one match alone. Haaland also recently compared Rooney with a teen hattrick on the day of the Champions League debut. Only 3 people who can do this are Raul, Wayner Rooney and Erling Haaland.

MU is currently ranked 12th at NHA rankings. This is a disappointing position compared to what the Reds are aiming for. At this time, both fans and MU only hope the winter will come quickly so they can receive more reinforcements. And Solsa, can your chair hold until winter? It is a difficult question to answer.
