Odion Ighalo became the latest Manchester United player on Deadline Day after a loan move from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.

The Nigerian International told Sky Sport news that the move is a dream move for him. He said:

“It’s a dream come true because since I was a kid I followed and dreamt of Manchester United,” Ighalo told Sky Sports News.

“But it is a reality now. I cannot say much more now until I get started.”

He also stated that He’s ready for the new challenge and to make the team and club better.

“This is a great opportunity for me and I am grateful to God, and to my agent, and the coach who has given me this opportunity to be here.

“I am happy to be here and to work out with the team and finish very well this season.

“The plan is to just chill today because I travelled a very long way from Shanghai to Manchester.

“Today is to just rest and tomorrow we start to work.”
