Man United have been told to try their luck and make a move for Sergio Aguero, if he is available for transfer.
Well, this is a transfer rumour we never thought we’d cover, but there you go. Manchester United, yes, Manchester United, are being told to try their luck with a cheeky bid for Sergio Aguero…
Look, it’s no secret that the Old Trafford club are crying out for an out-and-out goal-scorer. Edinson Cavani is great though his fitness concerns are a major issue. Anthony Martial’s inconsistency is a real concern, while the same can be said for Mason Greenwood.
That leaves United with a major decision to make. Sure, the obvious links to make are Harry Kane and Erling Haaland. However, Paul Ince believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should look closer to home. Just a few miles down the road in fact…
Yes, that’s right, Ince has urged United to try and sign the prolific 32-year-old if he’s available for transfer, citing a similar situation to what happened with Dennis Irwin back in 1992…
Check out what Ince had to say here:
“It’s not as if Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are the only two answers for Man Utd. Sergio Aguero might be leaving Man City, why shouldn’t United make a move for him?” the ex-Red Devils midfielder told Ladbrokes .
“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. It happened with us back in 1992 when Howard Wilkinson was asking Sir Alex Ferguson about Denis Irwin.
“Fergie said there’d be no chance of that happening and suggested Leeds sold [Eric] Cantona to them and within a couple of days that deal was done.
“It was just Fergie throwing a name out there and taking a chance, trying his luck. Maybe that’s what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer should do with Aguero this summer.”
On the face of it, it sounds mental to picture Aguero in United colours. But he would massively improve us, that much is obvious.
The Argentine has fallen out of favour under Pep Guardiola over the last couple of years, but whether the City boss would sign off on Aguero moving to a rival is still unlikely to happen.
Then you have questions surrounding just how tribal football is. Some United fans would never get on board with that idea, however many goals he’d score for us. Others would absolutely lap it up, particularly if he managed to net against his old side, or, even better, deliver us a title.
Our opinion is that this deal would likely never happen. I get the impression Aguero would prefer a move away from the Premier League if he were allowed to leave this summer. While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would probably want someone younger…
