Ighalo reveals EPL clubs he rejected after leaving Man Utd
Odion Ighalo, the Nigerian striker, has claimed he rejected offers from West Ham and West Brom, to keep him in the Premier League.
Ighalo further disclosed that he also snubbed Tottenham Hotspur before signing for Manchester United.
The 31-year-old completed a dream switch to United, a club he supported as a boy when a loan agreement with Shanghai Shenhua was reached in January 2020.
That short-term deal was extended to January 2021, before he left for Saudi Arabian side Al-Shabab.
“Yeah, there was the possibility of West Ham and West Brom to stay in the Premier League, which I thought about.
“But after being at Manchester United, the biggest club in England if not the world, what else could I possibly do in the Premier League?
“I had good offers to stay in England, but I just didn’t think I could stay after achieving my dream of playing for the club I had supported since I was young.
“I came all the way from China because it was Manchester United when I had already rejected other offers because United has always been my dream,” Ighalo told Sky Sports.
