Coach of English Premiership club Watford,Quique Sanchez Flores has pour cold waters on speculations linking 14 goals striker Odion Ighalo with a move to Manchester United.

Nigerian international Ighalo – English football’s most prolific striker in 2015 with 30 League goals – has admitted he would find it hard to turn down Manchester United because it is his “dream” to play at Old Trafford.

However Sanchez Flores is adamant both Ighalo and his strike partner Troy Deeney won’t be departing Vicarage road this winter at any cost even if they can coup 50 million pounds from the sale of the duo.

“I am happy to keep our best players here and to grow the project and it is completely impossible that Deeney or Ighalo will leave this month” He said.

“Normally it is impossible when big clubs make offers, but there are exceptions. I have seen almost everything over 30 years in football.

“They have total confidence in the way they play and they are in no rush to go out of Watford.

However he accepted keeping hold of the duo beyond this summer might be impossible as top clubs will definitely come for the duo.

“It is something you need to accept – when I was trainer at Valencia I knew it was impossible to keep David Silva, at Atletico Madrid I knew it was impossible to hold on to Sergio Aguero.”
