Manchester United could finally exact revenge on their local rivals Manchester City with a huge transfer this summer.
It would be a callback to 2009, when the blue half of the city pinched Carlos Tevez in controversial circumstances.
On that occasion, the Argentine told Sir Alex Ferguson he did not want to play for the club anymore.
After signing for City, a huge “Welcome to Manchester” billboard was erected all in blue.
And during their title parade in 2012 where they beat United to the Premier League on goal difference, Tevez held a sign saying “RIP Fergie” on it – which led to the club apologising.
But former Red Devils star Paul Ince believes they can get their own back – by signing Sergio Aguero.
The striker is out of contract at the end of the season and it does not appear that he will renew with City.
That is despite the fact that the 32-year-old still has a lot to offer the Premier League – while United are in the market for a forward.
Furthermore, Ince believes Aguero could become an Eric Cantona-like signing for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
He said: “It’s not as if Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are the only two answers for Man United though.
“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.”
