SQUAD DOING TRAINING DRILL STORY: Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo hopes to help Manchester United win two trophies and qualify for the Champions League after extending his loan deal at the Premier League club from Shanghai Shenhua until the end of January 2021.

Ighalo, whose initial loan spell from the Chinese Super League side was set to end on May 31, scored four goals in eight games for United before football was suspended due to COVID-19.

"I'm really happy.

It's a dream for me again, so I'm buzzing and I'm ready to go," he told MUTV on Tuesday (June 2).

United have nine games left to play in the league and are fifth on 45 points, three points behind Chelsea, with the campaign set to resume on June 17.

They have all but sealed progress to the Europa League quarter-finals after a 5-0 win over LASK Linz in the first leg of their last-16 fixture.

Ole Gunnar Solskaer's team will also play Norwich City in the FA Cup quarter-finals.

"We're fighting for two cups - the Europa Cup (Europa League) and the FA Cup," Ighalo said.

"We want to fight to get to the final to win it, which is possible and for us to end in the top four to qualify for the Champions League, which has been the aim of the manager, the fans and everybody in the club till today, this is what we want to achieve and I'm part of that goal to achieve that.

"So, I'm working towards that with the team and everybody around the club." (Production: Tim Hart)
