Coronavirus: Concerns over Ighalo’s move to Manchester United camp



The Red Devils are concerned that the 30-year-old will not be allowed back into the country if he joined them in Marbella for their warm-weather break

Odion Ighalo will not travel to Spain for Manchester United’s warm-weather training camp due to uncertainty relating to travel restrictions associated with the coronavirus outbreak.

The Red Devils fear he will not be allowed back into England because of precautionary measures in place for anyone who has been in China in recent weeks, with Ighalo having played for Shanghai Shenhua prior to his loan move to Old Trafford.

The Guardian reports that, as of February 8, officials have announced the death toll had risen to 724 since the outbreak began in China in December.
