Former Super Eagles striker, Odion Ighalo has revealed that he refused to return to China because he is not focusing on money alone.

Ighalo instead chose to extend his loan deal with Manchester United till next year January rather than return to Shanghai Shenhua on the expiration of his initial loan deal with the Red Devils.

Speaking with another ex-International, Ifeanyi Udeze on a radio programme on Brila FM monitored on Thursday morning, Ighalo said he decided to stay on at United over a big-money return to Shanghai because playing for the Manchester club is his childhood dream.

“Sometimes money is not everything in life, playing at Man United has been my childhood dream and it is not a decision I made just for now,’he said.

“I chose Man United over a return to Shanghai for the future and people will realize that I made the right decision when the time is right.

“Money is good,money is very very good, but Man United is my dream, I cannot jeopardize that dream because of money.

“Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t say money is not good but I didn’t just make the decision, I prayed about it and I believe something good can even come from the one year I will be spending in Manchester United,” said the 30-year old striker.

Ighalo had arrived Old Trafford in January on an initial six-months loan deal which expired May 31st before the recent extension by another six-months.
