TVC E, SPORTS – Nigerian goal poacher Odion Ighalo says a transfer offer from Manchester United will be too good to turn down.
The Watford striker had initially stated that he was not in a hurry to leave the Hornets.
In an apparent U-turn, Ighalo told The Sun that it would be hard to reject the Red Devils if an approach was made for his services.
Despite reports linking him with a move to clubs like Atletico Madrid and Roma, Ighalo says he wants to stay in the Premier League, most likely at Watford.
“There has been speculation from Spain and Italy but I’ve played there and now want to play in England.
“I don’t think I will be moving but I’m not sure I’d say no if United called.
“They were my team growing up. I loved watching Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke on TV.
“They were my idols and playing at Old Trafford has always been a dream.”
Ighalo has been pivotal for Watford this since the club returned to the top flight. The Hornets sit on the ninth position of the EPL with 20 games gone.
