Southampton striker Danny Ings is apparently waiting for a bid to arrive from Man United this summer.
Manchester United’s front line is already pretty menacing. From Edinson Cavani, to Marcus Rashford. There’s goals in this team. Sadly, we all know that El Matador’s long-term future lies away from Old Trafford as he’s getting up there in age.
It would make sense then, for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to start earmarking a potential replacement for Cavani when the Uruguayan calls it a day.
Danny Ings has been talked up as a possible target in the past. Now, it seems as though from his side of things, the Englishman wants to make a move to Manchester happen…
The story comes from talkSPORT, who state that the prolific 28-year-old striker is ‘holding out’ for a potential Man United move this summer. Manchester City is also on Ings’ wish list as a potential destination.
It’s Alex Crook with the scoop, as Ings continues to hold out on signing a new Saints contract in order of securing a move elsewhere. The striker currently has a year left on his remaining terms, meaning Southampton would risk losing him for free if they choose to cash in.
There is a pretty major issue for Ings, though. Crooks states that there hasn’t been a single enquiry in regards to buying the forward, before adding that he doesn’t expect neither Manchester club to be banging down the door in order to sign the Englishman.
From a United perspective, I’d imagine the doubt starts with his pretty awful injury history and ends with his struggles the last time he was at a big club (Liverpool). Factor in Ings being a bench player at best (for the most part), and it becomes a bit of a pointless signing at this point in time.
For us, this feels like a bit of a non-starter.
