Shanghai Shenhua sporting director, Zhou Jun, says Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo would be a perfect fit at Manchester United.

Ighalo joined the Red Devils on a six-month loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua in the January transfer window.

The 30-year-old has gone on to make a good impression at the club having netted four goals from eight appearances across all competitions.

The ex-Super Eagles striker could be on the brink of leaving Old Trafford following reports that the English club might be unwilling to pay the £20 million Shenhua are demanding for him.

However, Zhou Jun has revealed that Ighalo will fit in well at United, but he suggested the club might find it difficult to pay such amount of money at this difficult times.

“Realistically, Ighalo suits Manchester United. But many thing are now uncertain due to Covid-19. Would Manchester United be willing to spend? Would their bid reach our expectation?”, Jun was quoted by m.ttplus.cn.

Ighalo scored 10 goals from 17 appearances for Shanghai Shenhua last season.
