According to The Times of London, Manchester United have kept new signing Odion Ighalo from training with the rest of the squad for fear that the striker only recently came down from China, where the deadly Coronavirus broke out and has killed over a thousand people so far.
Ighalo has already missed out on the squad training in Marbella, Spain, because United claimed he may not be allowed back into UK as he was recently in China.
The Times reported that United took the precaution for Ighalo to remain in quarantine during the incubation period (the period between the time of infection and the appearance of the first symptoms), lasting 14 days.
Ighalo has been training at the National Taekwondo Center in Manchester since arriving in England in early February.
The incubation period will end this weekend, allowing the player to join the group in the Premier League match against Chelsea.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Ighalo will be on squad for Monday’s clash.
