Former Super Eagles defender Ifeanyi Udeze has made it clear that he will never have a second thought on accepting Shanghai Shenhua’s £400,000 per week offer given to Odion Ighalo.
Udeze’s statement comes after the Chinese Super League side Shanghai offered Odion Ighalo a contract extension which will make him the highest paid African player if he accepts.
Shanghai actually loaned Odion Ighalo to Manchester United during the January 2020 transfer window for a six-month deal.
And Odion Ighalo has so far grabbed the chance of playing for Manchester United well scoring four goals for the Red Devils before the League was suspended.
His parent club were impressed with his performances so far at Manchester United and they want him to come back offering him big deal.
Odion Ighalo on the other hand is waiting for what Manchester United will decide on for his future, but definitely, United will not pay him what Shanghai have offered.
“£400,000 is a lot of money and Manchester United cannot afford to match that amount, so, for me, I will accept Shanghai’s deal.
”At 31, who do you want to impress? no one, I will jump and accept Shanghai’s offer immediately,” Udeze explained to Brila FM.
Before the Premier League season was suspended, Manchester United were occupying fifth position on the standings.
