Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is considering giving former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo a contract at the end of his loan.

Solskjaer believes that the Nigerian has given him more attacking options with his peformance in just three matches even as substitute.

The 30-year-old made his debut in the last few minutes against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and forced a save from Willy Caballero.

Ighalo scored his first goal for the club on the day he made Solskjaer’s starting XI against Club Brugge in the last 32 Europa League game.

Solskjaer believes Ighalo is having an effect on his other strikers, and is already considering an extended stay.

“It doesn’t hurt [living the dream] but he’s here on merit, he’s here because he is a goalscorer and a different type of striker for us,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“We might get to the summer and think we want to extend this, who knows? “He’s come in as a breath of fresh air as well.

“He had chances in his five minutes against Chelsea , he scored against Brugge, he had chances against Watford , he had a very good save [from a shot] against Everton – there have been good saves, he doesn’t miss the target very often,” the coach said.
