Odion Ighalo spotted with property brochures while staying at Lowry hotel

ODION IGHALO was spotted entering the Lowry Hotel armed with property brochures.

The Manchester United new boy is settling into life in the city following his Deadline Day move from China’s Shanghai Shenhua.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad have jetted off to Spain for a warm-weather training camp during the winter break.

But Ighalo was blocked from joining his new team-mates over fears he would be barred from re-entering the UK amid the coronavirus threat.

In their absence, Ighalo has used the time to knuckle down at the training ground ahead of his Red Devils debut.

And the 30-year-old, who is on a season-long loan, has even found time to check out some swanky new pads.

Ighalo, dressed in black shorts and a hoodie, was pictured making his way into the hotel with a handful of documents.

He is currently staying at the Lowry – where Jose Mourinho spent the entirety of his time at United between 2016 and 2018.

Bruno Fernandes, who joined the club from Sporting for £55m, is also living at the four-and-a-half star complex.

The former Watford star appeared to be looking at a brochure for DAMAC Properties, who have a huge portfolio of luxury real estate in the Middle East and UK.

Solskjaer has confirmed that the 30-year-old is in line to make his debut in the Premier League clash against Chelsea.

When quizzed about Ighalo’s availability for the trip to Stamford Bridge, he said: “Yeah, he is going to travel with us.”

And he has been given the green light to travel to Belgium for the clash against Club Brugge in Europa League on February 20.
