Ferdinand gives reason why Manchester United should sign Ighalo permanently

Odion Ighalo Odion Ighalo

Former Manchester United player, Rio Ferdinand has urged the club to make its deal with Odion Ighalo a permanent one.

Ferdinand stated this during an Instagram Q&A where he likened Ighalo's performance to that shown by Henrik Larsson in the 2006/2007 campaign.

Ighalo joined Manchester United in the January transfer window on loan from Chinese side, Shanghai Shenhua, as a backup for injured Marcus Rashford.

He has scored four goals in the eight games he played for the club.

“I think he’s warranted the opportunity to come in as a full-time player and what he’s given Manchester United which they didn’t have is someone they can pass the ball into and can hold it up, he’s got a physical presence, he can hold off a defender or two and lay the ball in for someone else to score,” Ferdinand said.
