Odion Ighalo 'banned from Manchester United training ground' fears over the coronavirus

Manchester United have reportedly banned Odion Ighalo from attending the club's training ground due to fears over the coronavirus.

During the closing minutes of deadline day, United completed the loan signing of Ighalo, who has been playing for Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua.

As it stands, the forward is in contention to make his debut against Chelsea on Monday night, but it appears that the 30-year-old is currently being prevented from working with his new teammates.

According to The Mirror, Ighalo is unable to make an appearance at Carrington in order to minimise any risk of the illness being passed on in the coming days.

Despite the chances of Ighalo carrying the coronavirus being regarded as extremely small, United made the decision to effectively apply a 14-day incubation period.

The measures being taken by United have been described as "precautionary".
