Odion Igahlo has been spotted Manchester United's Carrington base for the first time after being “quarantined” amidst coronavirus fears.
The 30-year-old had been kept apart from his new team-mates for two weeks after completing his loan move from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.
Ighalo had been training alone in England while his team-mates were on a warm-weather training camp in Spain.
He was pictured leaving the Lowry Hotel on Thursday, but he was sent off to a private facility with a personal trainer.
Sources at the Manchester hotel have revealed his exclusion during the winter break was merely a precaution.
And the veteran striker was chauffeured into Carrington training ground for the first time this morning.
The Deadline Day loan signing will be available for Monday's clash against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Man Utd have identified Tottenham star Harry Winks as a £40m summer target.
Winks has proved his worth at the heart of the Spurs midfield as he pushes for a starting spot for Euro 2020 with England.
And Daily Mirror report United are ready to test Tottenham and Jose Mourinho's patience in targeting Winks as they look ahead to life without Paul Pogba – who seems nailed on to leaving in the summer.
FLYING THE NEST
Manchester United are eyeing a double transfer swoop for Norwich City duo Max Aarons and Todd Cantwell in the summer.
The pair have impressed at Carrow Road, despite the Canaries currently sitting bottom of the Premier League.
And the Daily Mail report they are likely to remain in the English top-flight even if Norwich are relegated.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to add to his attacking options, while Max Aarons can provide competition for places at either full-back position.
MORNING, RED DEVILS FANS
United are currently preparing for their visit to Stamford Bridge tomorrow, with just six points separating them from fourth-place Chelsea.
But they’re going to need to put in a real performance to do the league double over Frank Lampard’s men, with Luke Shaw admitting he and his teammates have not done the business for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
The pressure is growing on the Norwegian, with Man Utd reportedly looking at bringing in ex-Spurs man Mauricio Pochettino this summer.
However, Solskjaer is sure to be breathing a sigh of relief as Man City are said to now be in pole position for the Argentine with Pep Guardiola’s future uncertain after the champions were hit by a two-year Champions League ban.
Meanwhile, Utd will be without Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba for their trip to London.
Indeed, Pogba may have already played his last match for the Red Devils with Juventus apparently readying a £125million offer which includes midfielders Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot.
Agent Mino Raiola has confirmed discussions with Juventus.
And he has also talked up the chances of Pogba leaving by claiming the ace didn’t join United “not to challenge” for top titles.
After Chelsea, United travel to Belgium to take on Club Brugges in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 tie.
They will then host Watford at Old Trafford before facing Brugges yet again.
Scott McTominay is near a return for United following his knee injury.
The Scottish midfielder is thought to be targeting the Watford game at Old Trafford on February 23.
United's results have dropped off since he was injured on Boxing Day.
“I am feeling good, I am feeling fit. I have always had that drive and ambition to keep on top of my fitness and look after my body, because it is the most important thing,” McTominay told MUTV.
