Manchester United completed a dramatic late deal for Odion Ighaloafter Ole Gunnar Solskjaer called a deadline day meeting to solve his striker crisis.

In the eventful final hours of the January window the Norwegian switched his attentions from a permanent move for Josh King to a loan deal for Ighalo.

The swoop for the Shanghai Shenhua forward underlines the spin United were left in after missing out on Erling Braut Haaland at the start of the month.

The Norway starlet had been Solskjaer’s priority during this window and it’s believed there was confidence within Old Trafford that they had won the race for his signature.

But the 19-year-old ultimately opted for a move to Borussia Dortmund, with United sources claiming they’d pulled out after refusing to agree to a sell-on clause being stipulated by super agent Mino Raiola.
