Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled out a move for Sergio Aguero from rivals, Manchester City in the summer - insisting that he values "honesty" and would not make the move if he was a player.

City confirmed earlier in the week that Aguero would leave the club at the end of the season once his contract expires, which would bring the curtains down on what has been a trophy laden 10 year stay at the Etihad for the Argentinian.

The 32-year-old has been linked with a number of top European clubs including Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester United, though Solskjaer has now appeared to rule out the Red Devils making a move for the striker in the summer.

"When I played for Man Utd, if a rival club would try to sign me and I'd gone to a rival club, where's the loyalty? Of course, loyalty is one of the values I rank highly. So I wouldn't expect any player who had played for a club for 10 years to want to go to a local rival," he said as quoted by Sky Sports.

More than 40 players have played for both Manchester clubs in the past with some notable names in the Premier League era being Andy Cole, Owen Hargreaves, Peter Schmeichel and Carlos Tevez.
