Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince has suggested that the Red Devils try to sign Sergio Aguero from rivals Manchester City this summer.
Aguero’s contract with the Citizens expires at the end of this season.
City boss Pep Guardiola said at the beginning of March that the Argentinian’s future would be dependent on performances.
The 32-year-old has missed much of this season through injury. He scored his first Premier League goal of the season against Fulham on March 13.
United have been linked with Spurs striker Harry Kane and Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland already this season.
Speaking to Ladbrokes, Ince says that United should also be considering making a move for Aguero.
He explained: “It’s not as if Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are the only two answers for Man United.
“Sergio Aguero might be leaving Man City, why shouldn’t United make a move for him?
“You could see it now; if he wanted to stay in the Premier League and he’s living in Manchester, then I don’t think it would be a bad thing at all if they went and got Aguero.
“It can happen, who knows?
“You’ve got to ask the question if you’re United because you never know.”
Ince cited United’s signing of Eric Cantona from Leeds as an example of the club’s past transfer dealings with rival sides.
“It happened with us back in 1992 when [Leeds manager] Howard Wilkinson was asking Sir Alex Ferguson about Denis Irwin,” he said.
“Fergie said there’d be no chance of that happening and suggested Leeds sold Cantona to them and within a couple of days that deal was done.
“It was just Fergie throwing a name out and taking a chance, trying his luck.
“Maybe that’s what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should do with Aguero this summer.”
Ings reported interest puts Aguero future into further doubt
City’s reported interest in Southampton forward Danny Ings (via Sky Sports) has cast further doubt over Aguero’s long-term future at the club.
The England international has scored 37 league goals over the past two-and-a-half seasons since joining Southampton from Liverpool in 2018.
He initially joined on loan, before the Saints made the deal permanent the following summer for a £20 million fee.
Last season, Ings’s 22 Premier League goals were one fewer than the number recorded by Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy.
The 28-year-old’s contract with Southampton expires in the summer of 2022.
