Hi ed02,please tell me igalo transfer is not going to happen. can't believe we have become a joke.

{Ed002's Note - Any option to buy would make it laughable.}

Agree0 Disagree0

A natural goal scorer for 6 months at minimal costs whilst we only have two centre forwards on the books, one of whom is 18 years old.

Why on earth are you complaining?

31 Jan 2020 21:57:26
If it goes through it'll be for 6 months. Think of it as a free hit. What would be laughable is to not have any backup to Martial and Greenwood for the next 4 months.

If the terms work for us then I'd prefer to have an extra striker than not to have enough. He is a short term option with hopefully relatively little outlay.
I have a feeling he may surprise a couple of people particularly if Bruno is going to be feeding him, big strong boy, game changer in last 20 mins maybe, 16 goals in 35 Nigeria apps. Jesper blomqvist.

If it's just a loan ed?

6 month loan with an option to buy Angel
It looks like a case of just get an experienced man in for cover if he comes in and scores a few goals or leads the line well then great as someone said above its a free hit.
I don't think martial is a cf so he could well get some game time it will be interesting to see how hee does.
His record in the epl is a goal every 3 games about the same as martial.

Idhalos not the name we all wanted but to me it's a win win we got him on loan for 6 month he's a man utd fan so to me if he thinks he's got a chance of getting a contract he's gonae give his all ig anything hfully it will martial a kick up the arse that he needs.

31 Jan 2020 23:32:05
At least we have accepted we needed additional support up front, he apparently is in good form for country. Don't think option to buy but who knows if he does well.
As a back up for Martial with Greenwood he could be a good addition.
Low risk, just start summer planning now with the Euros I think we need to do our work early.

Read an article which sums this up perfectly. In a scenario where Haaland for £20m was perfect, and signing Joshua King for twice that, Ighalo on loan is an incredibly sensible middle ground.

Ed002 said numerous times Utd were not going to pay £20m for Haaland. It was going to be more than those figures.

And the kid made the right decisions for his development.

Ighalo is the kind of signing which might make or break Ole's managerial career with us. If he is banging in the goals, Ole is justified and might get another year. If he turns into another Bebe then Ole will be gone in the summer.

01 Feb 2020 09:24:29
Hes gone anyway after letting Lukaku go and not buying then . Messed the whole season up 😂😂.

01 Feb 2020 12:48:41
I'm not sure it was Ole who didn't want a striker in the summer BFRO.

01 Feb 2020 22:24:53
He's the same manager now making panic signings. He messed up big time . The guy has no idea . Do you think Jose would of made the same mistake. no he wouldnt. 😱😱.

02 Feb 2020 09:53:52
Easy to say that BFRO, but this isn't a computer game, the manager only has a little involvement in transfers. He may suggest names and say yes or no to others, but he doesn't actually handle the transfer.

Our failure to bring in replacements for players leaving is on Ed Woodward, not Ole.

Oh and fwiw, failing to replace Herrera was a much bigger mistake than Lukaku.

Funny hey. Almost everyone were happy to see Lukaku go just to justify Ighalo coming. Well karma, karma.
