Nigeria forward Odion Ighalo has had his FIFA 21 Ultimate Team revealed after leaving Manchester United, with six ICONs and some Premier League rivals making his squad a very expensive one.
After a disappointing lack of game time this season, Odion Ighalo’s “dream” of playing for Manchester United is complete, with the star announcing he is leaving the club on January 26.
It seems like Ighalo is spending his downtime like many of us — on FIFA 21. One Redditor, Wan123kin, came up against him in Division Rivals and shared his incredible starting XI. It features a jaw-dropping six ICONs, but there’s no room for any of his Manchester United teammates. One Manchester City rival, though, makes his team.

FUT Champs Ederson starts in goal for Ighalo, behind a back four that he has rather bizarrely placed himself in at CB. Alongside him on the backline are Adama Traore, Paolo Maldini and RB Leipzig’s Konrad Laimer.
Ahead of that is a truly mind-blowing midfield and attack. In total, there are another five ICONs between Ighalo and lone striker Kylian Mbappe, keeping very good company around him.

Using stats from FUTBIN, we’ve calculated the total price of his team. You may want to be sitting down, because we’ve worked out that it will roughly cost over 30 million coins.
As his opponent explained on Reddit, Ighalo doesn’t actually play himself at CB, swapping himself with Vieira in-game to maximize chemistry.
Many Redditors were quick to notice Ighalo’s team name, which is bizarrely titled ‘EA R CRIMINALS’ and rocking YouTube and non-league sensations Hashtag United’s logo.
