In form Premier League hit man desperate to make “dream” Man United move

Watford striker Odion Ighalo has admitted that he would he would jump at the chance join Manchester United if they were to make an offer for him, according to the Daily Star.

After bagging himself 14 goals already this season, the striker has emerged as a target for European giants Atletico Madrid and Roma, but he has sought to snub the interest from overseas in order to remain with the Premier League newcomers.

However, he has insisted that he would struggle to turn down the opportunity to head for Old Trafford.

“There has been speculation from Spain and Italy but I’ve played there and now want to play in England,” he said.

“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.”

The Star states that Ighalo is under contract at Vicarage Road until 2020, and that last year he rejected a £10m move to Chinese club Hebei China Fortune, meaning United would have to surpass that fee if they want to bring him on board.
