(AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Manchester United striker, Odion Ighalo maintained his fitness levels ahead of a possible restart to the season by training in a Cheshire park on Monday.
The Nigerian striker, dressed in United training gear, was pictured doing sprint drills on the grass in readiness for a potential resumption of the Premier League next month.
Under the Premier League’s Project Restart proposals, players will return to full training later this month with a view to restarting matches behind closed doors at neutral venues from June 12.
And Ighalo, who scored four goals in eight matches for United before the season was suspended, is clearly determined to hit the ground running.
However, United’s efforts to keep Ighalo have been thrown into doubt after his parent club in China, Shanghai Shenhua, demanded a permanent transfer worth in excess of £20million.
Ighalo’s loan to Old Trafford technically expires on May 31 but United are keen to extend it so he can continue playing for them once the season resumes.
