Only Man United could tempt hotshot Ighalo to leave Watford

Tom Victor

Plenty of Premier League teams could do with a goalscorer like Odion Ighalo, and there’s a chance the Nigerian could fall right into Man United’s lap.

The Watford striker has already scored 14 league goals this season – more than any other Hornets player in Premier League history.

But he admits he’s “not sure I would say no” were United to make an approach, according to the Evening Standard.


“[Manchester United] were my team growing up. I loved watching Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke on TV,” Ighalo said

“They were my idols and playing at Old Trafford has always been a dream.”

The 26-year-old joined Watford from Serie A side Udinese, initially on loan, in 2014.

He has played top-flight football in Italy, Spain and Norway, but is thought to be keen to stay in England now that he has established himself in the Premier League.
