Al Shabab is close to formalizing the arrival of Nigerian international striker Odion Ighalo.
As announced Odion Ighalo is expected to join Al Shabab, a Saudi professional league club. This Wednesday, the 32-year-old footballer joined the club’s facilities for his medical examination. Indeed, after the end of his adventure with Manchester United, Odion Ighalo is about to sign to Al Shabab. According to the information, the Super Eagle has just successfully passed his medical examination within the Saudi club. Information confirmed by representatives of the Nigerian striker, including Jean-Willy Ngoma.
Jean-Willy Ngoma said that “The project convinced us. He passed the medical examination successfully. There is support for the player’s total salary. Then Odion Ighalo had a discussion with the coach which was very positive concerning him. So we are about to sign ”
The striker should therefore not a priori return to Shanghai Shenhua, where his contract runs until December 2021.
He scored five goals in 23 appearances across all competitions for United after arriving on Deadline Day last January but has made only two starts this season.
