Nigerian international Odion Ighalo is a step closer to signing for Saudi Arabian Pro League club Al Shabab after passing his medical.
WuzupNigeria reported three days ago that the 31-year-old’s parent club – Chinese outfit Shanghai Shenhua, permitted him to speak with Al-Shabab after leading Old Trafford and the Saudi club who have until February 7 (Saudi Arabia’s transfer deadline) to complete the deal.
According to latest reports, the deal is set to be completed after Ighalo agrees on personal terms on a “multi-year” deal with the six-time Saudi champions.
“Despite interest from other clubs, this is a good move for the player because Al Shabab showed ambition and commitment in their efforts to sign him.”
Ighalo scored 10 goals in 19 appearances for Shanghai Shenhua, helping them to the 2019 Chinese FA Cup.
His move to United was a dream come through and he helped the club reach three semifinals, including the Europa League, in the 2019/20 season scoring five goals in 18 matches.
