MANCHESTER UNITED are preparing for a tough trip to Chelsea.
But Odion Ighalo has reportedly been ordered to train away from the rest of the Red Devils squad after arriving from China.
Meanwhile, United are said to be readying a massive bid for PSG's World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe in the summer.

MAUR TO COME
Ex-Spurs chief Mauricio Pochettino, for so long and so often linked with bossing Manchester United, admits he would “love” to boss again in England.
PSG manager Thomas Tuchel and Argentinian Poch are the latest favourites to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, should the Norwegian depart Old Trafford.
And Pochettino told Sky Sports: “To be honest, I would love to work in the Premier League.
“It's going to be difficult, I know, and for now it's a moment to wait and we'll see what happens.
“It's a moment of recovery, to think about yourself a little bit, and to be ready because in football always something can happen and you need to be ready.
“I'm ready and waiting for a new challenge. I have the belief and confidence that the next challenge will be fantastic.”
The form of Nemanja Matic has given United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a quandary over his midfield selection.
This combined with the arrival of £46.6million midfielder Bruno Fernandes and the anticipated return of Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba from injury, has left the Norwegian with a dilemma.
Certainly for Monday's trip to Chelsea, he could still play Matic alongside Fred with Fernandes in the creative role.
But after that, Fred is likely to be the fall guy despite his hugely impressive performances for the Red Devils this season.
Matic had struggled for form but in the last months has produced a series of outstanding displays.
But the Serb is thought to be a target for Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho in the summer.
FER A LAUGH
Rio Ferdinand will be off the Manchester City Christmas card list – after ripping into them with a tweet laughing at their demise.
City have been banned from Europe for two seasons due to Financial Fairplay irregularities.
And former Manchester United star Ferdinand wasted no time in joking about their old rivals.
He tweeted: “What a shame”
This was accompanied by a laughing face emoji.
Fans fear Everton, Brighton and Manchester United could be the next in the sights of Financial Fair Play gurus.
United have a net spent of £7MILLION pounds MORE than neighbours City since 2016.
City have been banned from Europe for two years and fined £25m for FFP irregularities.
United have a net spent of £439m since 2016 on transfers, according to the Premier League Panel.
Everton have a net spend of £195m and Brighton's is £197 in the last four years.
Compare this with Norwich (minus £48m) and Southampton (£19m net spend)
ButUefa has found City guilty of disguising the true source of their income.
United's income could satisfy FFP rules because of the amount of money they make globally from merchandise and their commercial arm.
Dimitar Berbatov has told his old club to make the £100million signing of Jadon Sancho their top priority this summer.
Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now signed five players as his Old Trafford rebuild gathers momentum.
And former United favourite Berbatov believes Snacho will be a key part if the England player is recruited to line up alongside Marcus Rashford.
“I think Jadon is really developing well in Germany and he is still very young,” Berba told Betfair.
“The progress he has made over there has been unbelievable and hopefully he has his reasons for deciding to leave.
“Is Ole Gunnar Solskjaer going to sign him for Manchester United? Why not?
“Coming from my time there, I would like to see him go to Old Trafford.
“Of course, it will make them more powerful, it will give them more speed than what they already have, but the question is where will he play?”
