Football: Ighalo, £20m? Not worth it – Neville

Manchester United legend Gary Neville has advised the club against spending £20m on striker, Odion Ighalo.

The ex-Super Eagles striker, who is on loan from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua, has been in good form since moving to England in the January transfer window.

He has scored four goals for United in eight appearances in all competitions.

This form has seen United considering him for a permanent deal after the expiration of his loan in June.

His parent club, Shenhua, are hoping to keep him, tabling a contract renewal worth £400,000 per week for the striker.

They are however willing to let go of him if United are able to cough out £20m for a permanent move.

The Nigerian has also expressed his interest in staying at his boyhood club.

But in an Instagram Live interview, Neville, advised United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, against spending that amount on the striker.

According to him, the ex-Watford player is not worth the £20m his parent club are asking for him.
