Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that new signing Odion Ighalo will be in the match-day squad to face Chelsea in the Premier League on Monday, despite missing the club’s season-break training camp in Spain.
“Yeah, he is going to travel with us. We will just see his fitness work this week and I think we will get him sharp,” he told MUTV.
“We want to integrate him as quickly as we can because, of course, he is desperate to play for us.”
The 30-year-old joined the Red Devils on a five-month loan deal from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua on the transfer deadline day.
