The 30-year-old arrived in Manchester on Sunday and is set to meet with his new team-mates during the United’s winter break in Marbella.
It will be two weeks before Ighalo can be fully in the Manchester United Squad when Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s team face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on February 17.
Now, According to MySportDab sources, Ighalo has been given the No 25 jersey for his six-month loan at Old Trafford.

Other number available open for Ighalo were 7, 12, 11, 16, 19, 28, 27 and 30.
25 is a popular jersey number in Nigeria due to the prominence Nigeria legend Nwankwo Kanu gave it during his time at Arsenal in the 1990s.
