- Odion Ighalo is officially a Manchester United player and fans have reacted differently to the move
- The 30-year-old made a last minute move to secure a six-month loan deal at Old Trafford from Shanghai Shenhua
- Ighalo scored a remarkable 15 goals in his first season in the English topflight division with Watford
Odion Ighalo's loan move to Manchester United is one of the most talked about transfer deal in the winter market.
The former Nigerian striker completed a six-month deal from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua on deadline day.
And the 30-year-old have generated lots of reactions from the Red Devils' faithfuls around the world following the move.
The former Watford star was previously linked with a move to Old Trafford back in 2016. Louis van Gaal attempted to sign the Nigerian striker for £35million in January 2016, but the offer was rejected.
But the ex-Super Eagles forward went on to score 15 Premier League goals later in that season but only managed one in 18 games before moving to China in the next campaign.
One fan named ManUtdMindset did not forget the history between the club and Ighalo tweeted: “Imagine Van Gaal signed Ighalo lmao. What a near miss that was.”
ManUtdMindset then later added a picture of a fan with his hands in his head and said: “Fu*k it. The Nigerian R9 returns to the PL. #WelcomeIghalo”.
"Ighalo scored more goals at the 2019 AFCON than Mahrez, Pepe, Aubameyang, Salah and Mane??" another fan added with a video of four boys dancing in the streets.
A third fan also posted a video clip of two young men dancing and tweeted: "Scott McTominay after one game with Odion Ighalo."
A fourth aimed his tweet at out of form Jesse Lingard watching Ighalo in training. The Twitter user posted a video clip of a player doing a ball drill in traing and his coach insulting him: "Scott McTominay after one game with Odion Ighalo."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Odion Ighalo on the last day of the winter transfer window completed a dream move to Man United on a six month deal.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is delighted in adding more firepower to his attacking options in his team.
