‘THEY’D BE HARD TO TURN DOWN’ – IGHALO OPENS DOOR TO MANCHESTER UNITED MOVE By Matthew Rogerson

The striker expects to remain at Watford for
the foreseeable future, but admitted
Manchester United would be a tough club to
turn down
Watford striker Odion Ighalo would find it hard
to say no if Manchester United made an
approach for his services, but has played
down the prospect of leaving Vicarage Road
this month.
Ighalo has been one of the standout
performers for Quique Sanchez Flores’ side on
their return to the Premier League – helping
Watford to ninth in the table with 20 games
gone.
The Nigeria international has 14 goals in 20
top-flight appearances this term, having also
scored 20 times in the Championship last
term as Watford went up as league winners.
Amid speculation linking him with a move to
the likes of Atletico Madrid and Roma, Ighalo says he wants to stay in the Premier League,
most likely at Watford.
But the 26-year-old acknowledged United
would prove difficult to turn down.
Former Udinese and Granada man Ighalo 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 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.”
