The Manchester United squad traveled to Marbella on Saturday to begin their winter training camp ahead of the clash with Chelsea in 8 days.
New signings Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo were both expected to join the squad on the trip but Odion Ighalo has been left out.
“Odion [Ighalo] will stay in Manchester, because he arrived from China in the last 14 days. Because of the situation in China, we’re not sure if he’d be allowed back into England if he leaves the country again,” Solskjaer says ahead of the flight.
“He’s [Ighalo] staying here working with a personal coach, individual programme and his family then can settle in England as well. That’s a plus.”
“Of course he [Ighalo] might have liked to have come with the players and got to know them, but the risk [of potential border restrictions tightening], we don’t want to take that.”
