And his performances have aroused the interest of top European clubs including Ighalo's present side United.

Osimhen paid a visit to watch Ighalo play in Red Devils Europa League second leg clash against Clubbe Brugge at Old Trafford in February.

Also, Legit.ng reported that Ighalo has backed the duo of Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze to shine in the Super Eagles jersey.

The youngsters broke into the country's national team last year and ended up winning bronze medal in their first competitive outing at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Championship in Egypt.

Although that would not have happened without the help of the 30-year-old star who scored five goals and also ended up winning the tournament's highest goals scorer gong.

Ighalo announced his retirement at the end of the competition last summer saying it was time to focus on his club career.

And despite several interventions from different quarters, the striker wants to remain retired for the time being.
