Nigerian Striker Odion Ighalo has arrived in Manchester to undergo his medical and be unveiled as a new Manchester United player, MySportDab reports.
Ighalo completed a late Deadline Day loan deal from Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua to United.
MySportDab can confirm that the former Watford striker arrived at Manchester Airport on Sunday morning and said he is ready to prove himself at Old Trafford.
“It is a dream come true because since I was a kid I have always dreamt of Manchester United,” Ighalo told Sky Sports.
“But now it is a reality. I cannot say much for now until I get started.”
Speaking about the hectic last few days before the transfer was announced, Ighalo added: “It’s been just crazy. Obviously, I am very happy to be in Manchester surely.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for me and I am grateful to my agent and to God and also the coach who has given me this chance to be here today.
“I am very happy to be here and to work with the team and end this season very well.
“The plan is to relax today because I travelled a very long distance from Shanghai to Manchester.
“Today is to rest and tomorrow we start working.”
Manchester Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Ighalo will perform at the club, after scoring 16 goals in 55 Premier League games for Watford.
“Odion is a very experienced player,” Solskjaer said.
“He will come in and give us another good option in attack for the short time he’s staying here with us.”
