Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo, is in Barcelona to continue his rehabilitation from a knee injury, which he sustained at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

The striker, who scored Nigeria’s winning goal in the third-place win against Tunisia, was taken off at half time to give way to youngster Victor Osimhen.

Ighalo called time on his international football career after the tournament stating personal reasons.

After a picture of the Shanghai Shehua striker in the Barcelona emerged, speculations began to swirl that he was possibly negotiating a move to the LaLiga champions.

Ighalo then had to upload a video on Instagram, to clarify that he was undergoing treatment for his hamstring and not a medical for a new club.

He will be hoping to get back into shape in time to help his struggling team in the Chinese Super League, as they currently sit 12th on the log with the threat of getting relegated, after managing just six wins in 21 matches this season.
