Odion Ighalo is in the midst of a dream scenario as he stars for Manchester United and scores in his every start.

This dream is reality, but reality as we know it has been stopped for now.

The Premier League and Europa League have been postponed due to a global health pandemic.

While the league is scheduled to re-convene from April 3, there is no way of knowing if this will be possible.

There is a scenario which could play out which means the season cannot be completed.


This in theory means there is a chance Ighalo has played his final game for Manchester United.

The dream will continue

Ighalo is a United supporter and in the event this is it, he can say he lived his dream.

It would be pretty cruel for it to end so prematurely though, and neither he or United will be satisfied if he simply heads back to China.

Ighalo has scored four goals in three starts and is providing genuine value to United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told The Evening Standard: “He knows his job and role in the team, and he’s very good with his back to goal.

“He’s a great link player, but maybe the best thing about him is his personality. He’s got the whole lot really.”

Ighalo is a different type of striker to United’s current options and has a connection with the fans, because he is one.

There should be mutual interest in making his move a permanent one.

Whatever happens with the ongoing health situation, we feel pretty confident this not the last we have seen of Ighalo representing Manchester United.
