Odion Ighalo revealed new customised Nike boot in honours of his late sister Mary after Manchester United confirmed jersey number ahead of Manchester United possible debut against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on February 17.

The 30-year-old former Super Eagles striker sealed his dream move on Deadline Day when moving to Old Trafford in a £3million loan deal from Shanghai Shenhua last Friday in an injury-hit campaign where he managed to score 10 goals in 15 starts in the Chinese Super League.

However, Ighalo suffered the personal tragedy of losing his older sister back in 12 December last year at the age of 42 but ex-Nigeria international took to his social media to paid a touching tribute in the new customise boot with the message and Nigerian flag on it.

Ighalo has now been handed the No 25 jersey ahead of his possible debut against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge following the Premier League winter break after returning from a warm-weather training camp in Marbella despite he is yet to be unveiled by the club.
