Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo might be staying back in Europe after his deal with Manchester United expires in January 2021.

French League champions Paris Saint-Germaine are reportedly interested in the 31-year-old forward, but will have to meet Shanghai Shenhua's price.

The Chinese Super League side had earlier this year told the Red Devils to pay a fee of around £20 million for the former Watford star, but United turned their back on the deal.

The publication also claims Man United might allow him to leave if PSG show seriousness in signing him this summer.

Apart from scoring, Ighalo also equalled United's 95-year-old record after scoring in four straight games - becoming the second player to achieve the feat after Jimmy Hanson.

The 31-year-old is the highest-paid Nigerian star in Europe with a staggering £125K-a-week after extending his stay at Old Trafford.

Napoli's new signing, Victor Osimhen, ranks second on the log with £96,000-a-week while Wilfred Ndidi of Leicester City completes top three stars on the chart with £75,000-a-week.
