Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has expressed doubt on whether Odion Ighalo is good enough to play for the club.
United had moved to sign Ighalo on loan from Shanghai Shenhua after Marcus Rashford was ruled out for up to three months with a back problem.
But Scholes, speaking to the UK Mirror, said: “I don’t think he’s signing for the long term. I think his scoring record in China is very good, but is it credible? I don’t know.
“It’s good to have an extra body, but when you’re United, you want an extra body with quality, and he’s got that to prove.
“He’ll bring something different. But I don’t see him starting many games.”
