The Yankees were short starting pitching, and Igawa was one of the best starters in Japan. Lacking options in obtaining a starter from their own farm system or through free agency, the Yankees selected Igawa. Igawa was posted (the approved process for Japanese non-free-agent players to emigrate to MLB) and the Yankees paid $26 million to obtain Igawa.

Did Lou Gehrig have been asked to be on another team besides the Yankees for more money?

The freedoms that today's baseball players have were not in existence when Lou Gehrig played. There was a rule back then called the 'reserve clause' which allowed a team to 'reserve' the rights of a player once that player's contract expired. Because of this, players were not able to negotiate with other teams when their contracts expired and there was no free agency like there is today. The only way Lou could have played for another team was if the Yankees traded him or released him.
