Odion Ighalo to make appearance in Man United's clash against Club Brugge

- Odion Ighalo may be included in the Man United squad to face Club Brugge

- The Nigerian striker joined the Old Trafford outfits from China on January deadline day

- The 30-year-old star was left out the United squad that travelled to Spain for winter break due to coronavirus outbreak

Deadline day signing, Odion Ighalo, has been included in the Manchester United team to face Club Brugge during the Europa League tie scheduled after the winter break.

The Nigerian international was left out of the United squad that travelled to Marbella training camp amid heightening border restrictions.

Scott McTominay and defender Axel Tuanzebe also made it with the rest of the squad to Spain, but because Ighalo came from China, there was fear border restriction might be much tighter for his return back to the UK, hence the decision to drop him.

The 30-year-old striker will now make his Man United much-anticipated appearance against Club Brugge and may also be at the forefront for the Reds against Chelsea.
