Watford of England sensational striker Odion Ighalo, has revealed that it will be a difficult decision for him to turn down a move to Manchester United, but has played down the prospect of leaving Vicarage road in the January transfer window.
The Nigerian striker, has been in sensational form for Quique Sanchez Flores’ side this season and has 14 goals in his last 20 appearances for the Hornets – helping Watford to ninth in the table.
And the 26-year old, who joined Watford from Udinese, has admitted he would jump at the chance to join the Louis Van Gaal’s side.
He told The Sun: “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 Manchester 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.”
Manchester United manager, Louis van Gaal admitted earlier this month that he could move for a forward in the transfer window to reduce the burden on forwards, Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney.
However, Ighalo who is under a contract at Vicarage Road until 2020, rejected a £10m move to Chinese club Hebei China Fortune last year, meaning United would have to surpass that fee if they want to bring the Nigerian on board.
