The Nigerian left United in January 2021 after a year on loan with the Red Devils, and since joined Saudi Arabian team Al-Shabab.
During an interview with Sky Sports News, he said: "Yeah, there was the possibility of West Ham and West Brom to stay in the Premier League, which I thought about.
"But after being at Manchester United, the biggest club in England if not the world, what else could I possibly do in the Premier League?
"I had good offers to stay in England, but I just didn't think I could stay after achieving my dream of playing for the club I had supported since I was young.
"I came all the way from China because it was Manchester United when I had already rejected other offers because United has always been my dream."
