Ighalo is alone with United, however, until the end of the season, and the Red Devils are likely to pursue a new goal in the summer.
And Jota could be that man. United have been passionate forward for some time, but have a contract with Wolves until 2022.
He has made 33 appearances this season and scored 12 goals, providing five assists.
And United may be keen to make it their last signing in the summer, even if they are interested in multiple goals.
