Odion Ighalo

Manchester United’s latest signing, Odion Ighalo, has joined the team in the trip to Belgium for their clash with Club Brugge in Thursday’s UEFA Europa League match.

Manchester United confirmed on Wednesday via Twitter that Odion and Portuguese, Bruno Fernandes, made their first European trip with the club.

The deadline-day signee from Shanghai Shenhua could be involved in the Round of 32 game.

Ighalo made history on Monday night in the game against Chelsea as the 200th player to feature for the Red Devils.

“Fellow January signing Bruno Fernandes is also available to feature for United in the competition, despite representing Sporting Lisbon in the group stages,” the club said in its website.

“The Portugal international benefits from a change in the cup-tied rules in European games.

“United lifted the trophy in 2017 and victory in the Europa League continues to guarantee a spot in the following season’s Champions League.”
