Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero could be a transfer option for Manchester United, according to former England international Paul Ince.

Aguero is set to become a free agent at the end of the season, having already entered the final six months of his contract with Man City.

The Argentine international has also attracted transfer interest, with a number of clubs, including FC Barcelona, said to be keen on signing him.

Man United are expected to be in the summer transfer market for a new striker, and Ince believes it would not be a bad thing if the Red Devils went and got Aguero.

"It’s not as if Harry Kane and Erling Haaland are the only two answers for Man Utd," 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."

Aguero, who will turn 33 in June, is one of the greatest players in the history of Man City, having been at the club since 2011. Meanwhile, Pep Guardiola's side could still offer Aguero a new contract that would extend his stay at the club beyond the summer. Even if they don't, it would not be hard for Aguero to find a new club.
