Former Manchester United midfielder, Paul Ince, has urged manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to try and sign Sergio Aguero from their rivals Manchester City.
According to Ince, that is what former Red Devils boss, Sir Alex Ferguson did, when he landed Eric Cantona from Leeds United.
Aguero is out of contract at the Etihad this summer and Pep Guardiola is yet to confirm his plans for the Argentine striker.
Ince told Ladbrokes: “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.
“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 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.”
