Ighalo agrees personal terms with Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab
NEWSMAN – Shanghai Shenhua forward Odion Ighalo has agreed on personal terms with Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab.
Odion Ighalo, who was on loan at Manchester United for a year, is having a medical ahead of a permanent deal with Saudi Arabian club Al-Shabab.
Ighalo had to take a pay cut to make his dream move to United as he was reeling in an eye-watering £300,000 a week in China.
At United, he collected £180,000 and he should be in for another good pay day in the Middle East as Barcelona legend Xavi received in the region of £160,000 a week at Saudi side Al-Sadd – where he is now the boss.
The attacker is currently undergoing his medicals and set to sign a two-and-a-half-year deal with the King Fahd Stadium outfit.
The 31-year-old centre-forward returned to Shanghai Shenhua in January after ending his loan deal with Premier League giants Manchester United.
Transfer window in Saudi Arabia is open for another week before slamming shut on February 7.
