Super Eagles forward and new Manchester United recruit  Odion Ighalo had his first exclusive interview today at Manchester United where he took time to explain his long-standing support for Manchester United and the circumstances behind his dramatic deadline-day loan move to Old Trafford.

He aswell described his move to Manchester United as “a dream come true” having supported the club during his days as a kid stating, explicitly that he didn’t care about the Pay-cut in his endings when Manchester came knocking  

“… So, from 11pm, there was paperwork, negotiating and all that, for the loan deal and all that, so we are talking and other teams are calling them, wanting me, but I told my agent that this is what I want. I want to come here. He said you’re going to get a pay-cut to go to United. I said I don’t care. Make this deal happen. I want to go to United. I don’t care how much is the pay-cut, I know that, make it happen. So the director and everybody didn’t know what to say anymore, because I had already made up my mind, so my agent started putting it in order, and, at 5am, we finished. My agent said he’d forwarded all the papers to United, they will confirm for me if everything is okay. I think, around 5am-6am, he said everything is okay, it’s done. I was excited. I called my mum and she was happy, crying and all that. This is your dream and all that and I’m happy for you. It was dramatic, I didn’t sleep through, I was very happy that finally, we got the deal done.”
