Odion Ighalo has been identified as one of the six players who have been picked to leave Premier League giants Manchester United in the January 2021 transfer window.

Manchester United have not been impressive this season in the Premier League and their recent elimination from the Champions League is still hurting many fans.

The Red Devils' gaffer Ole Solskjaer has been under serious pressure at Old Trafford this term and there have been calls from fans for the Norwegian to be kicked out.

Ighalo joined Manchester United on loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January 2019, but since his arrival, the Nigerian has not started any Premier League game under Solskjaer.
