Also he has been offered contract extension with tax free improved deal worth 400m pounds.
He claims what United boss told him after scoring two goals in a Derby match.
“I remember the Derby County game, I scored two goals but he called me and said you’re a striker you should score three goals,” Ighalo said
Teammate Luke Shaw, who also scored in the Derby victory, explained how the rest of the squad were delighted to hear Ighalo was staying at the club.
“All the players are really happy for him,” Shaw said. “Obviously his situation was up in the air and we try not to talk about that kind of thing at training but we’re just so happy for him.
“Before he arrived, a few people outside the club weren’t too sure what he was going to bring to the club, but he’s shown everyone because he’s brought goals and a different style to our other strikers.
“He’s earned and deserved the chance to stay here longer. He brings happiness and a smile to the place.
“He’s great in training but he’s also been really important at times during games and scored some great goals.
“Now that everything’s sorted, hopefully he can relax now and settle back into doing what he was doing before football stopped.”
