Barcelona, Inter Milan and Chelsea have all been linked with Sergio Aguero and Manchester United are the latest club tipped to make an offer.
Former Red Devils midfielder Paul Ince, 53, has told the club to consider the Argentine, 32 when his contract expires in the summer.
The ex-England star 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 [signing] 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.”
