Football lovers took to social media platforms to react to Manchester United’s late loan signing of Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.
The former Super Eagles forward is making a return to the Premier League after plying his trade with Watford for three years, between 2014-2017 before joining China’s Changchun Yatai.
The Old Trafford dwellers announced the arrival of Ighalo on Transfer Deadline Day, no thanks to a back injury to Marcus Rashford which could rule the England forward out of action for three months.
Below are some selected tweets from the fans on Twitter.
