Watford striker Odion Ighalo says he would only leave Vicarage Road if
Manchester United came calling.
The 26-year-old has been one of the Hornets’ standout performers this season,
netting 14 Premier League goals in 20 appearances so
His form has attracted interest from some of Europe’s elite clubs, including
Atletico Madrid and Roma, but Ighalo has ruled out a move to anywhere other
than to Old Trafford.
The Nigeria international said: ‘I don’t think I will be moving but I’m not
sure I could say no if United called.’
He went on to explain: ‘They were my team growing up. I loved watching Andy
Cole and Dwight Yorke.
‘They were my idols and playing at Old Trafford has always been a dream.’
Watford, who were promoted from the SkyBet Championship in May, have been
exceeding expectations this term.
Despite being widely tipped as relegation candidates, Quique Sánchez Flores’s
men find themselves sitting comfortably ninth in the table with 29 points, 12
clear of the drop-zone.
