The Red Devils were finally able to secure the signing of ex-Watford striker Odion Ighalo who joined the club on a six-month loan from Chinese Super League outfit Shanghai Shenhua.
Manchester United were linked with five strikers in the recently concluded January transfer window before they eventually snapped up Nigeria international Odion Ighalo on the deadline day.
The Red Devils spent the better part of the month negotiating a deal with Sporting Lisbon for midfielder Bruno Fernandes before eventually securing his services on Thursday.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s attention then turned to secure the signature of a striker as Marcus Rashford’s back injury has left his side short of options in the attacking department.
The England international’s injury might keep him out of action for four months and forced United to look for short-term options as they push for Champions League qualification.
