Nigeria goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa would love to play for Manchester United alongside fellow Nigerian Odion Ighalo, MySportDab reports.
Ikechukwu Ezenwa still believes it is possible for his to join Manchester United
In January, Manchester United made Ighalo the first Nigerian to sign for the club on a loan deal from Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua.
The 30-year-old was very happy to join his boyhood club and he has impressed with some top quality performances in recent weeks before the football suspension.
MySportDab can confirm Ighalo H has scored four goals in eight matches for the Old Trafford club.
Ighalo’s dream to sign a permanent contract would come to past and his international teammate goalkeeper Ezenwa is not giving up.
Asked about his favourite club on Instagram Live, Ezenwa said: “I will join my good friend Ighalo at Manchester United.
“It is possible but I have always been a Real Madrid fan.”
However, Ezenwa believes Ighalo is one of the most professional footballers he’s ever played with.
“At any training session, he’s always playful and even after all the training sessions, he would still score me,” he said.
Ezenwa has played 21 matches for the Nigeria national team and was part of 2018 Russia World Cup squad.
However, Manchester United have no plans to sign a new goalkeeper due to the availability of options.
David De Gea remains United’s No 1 but his place is no longer safe after impressive performances from Dean Henderson on loan at at Sheffield United.
The 23-year-old Goalkeeper has conceded only 22 goals in 27 matches for Sheffield, with 10 clean sheets.
