Man Utd star Odion Ighalo planning to ask God if he should stay at Old Trafford but reveals he is yet to have an offer

ODION IGHALO is yet to decide whether he will stay at Manchester United - but will ask God for guidance when he does.

The Nigerian striker sealed a shock loan move from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua in the winter transfer window and has since scored four goals in eight games before the season was suspended amid the coronaries pandemic.

Ighalo - who took a 40 per cent pay cut on his mega £300,000-a- week contract to join United - revealed he is yet to receive an offer to make the move permanent, but will be joined by God when figuring out his next move.

He told ElegbeteTV : "There is no offer on the table yet because the season is still on and I’m yet to finish my loan deal.

"I don’t just take decisions alone in my life. I have a principle and I have a guideline for everything I do. I always pray to God to direct me."

Ighalo was a last-gasp signing in the January sales, as manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperately searched for backup going forward.

United are said to have a winger and striker in their summer wishing, leaving Ighalo's future up in the air.

But the 30-year-old ex-Watford forward has had to block out the differing advice on whether to commit his future to Old Trafford.

Ighalo said: "I have seen so many tweets about this. I have seen so many people going crazy, [saying] 'Go back to China', some say stay with Man United.

"Have you seen me say a word? I don't have anything to say. When the season's finished and I get two offers from the two teams, then I will sit and think about it, pray about it and whatever God says I should do, I will go with that.

"I don't just sit down and take decisions, and I don't get carried away with whatever people say. I came to Manchester United to play for a pay cut because I wanted to.

"So anything could happen, but I want the season to finish and my loan to finish. Then I will see everything I have.

"You don't just rush and do things. 'I'm going here, I'm going here'. I have to sit down and finish the season well, sit down with my agent, see what's on the ground: A, B, C, D, is on the ground. Okay we have to pick."
