Solskjaer told £25-30 million the price to pay if Manchester United wnat to seal transfer deal
Southampton will reportedly consider cashing in on Danny Ings if they receive an offer of between £25-30million from the likes of Manchester United.
Ings enjoyed a phenomenal 2019/20 campaign with Southampton and was amongst the top-flight’s most prominent goalscorers, but Ings suffered a slight drop off in both goals and games this season, netting 12 times after making nine fewer appearances.
However, that has not stopped speculation that some of the big clubs are circling for a potential transfer deal this summer, with Manchester United a club that has been linked with a move.
United are looking at Ings as a target this summer as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his attacking ranks, as he knows that Edinson Cavani will not be able to play every game next season.
According to The Athletic, Ings has been reluctant to put pen to paper on a new contract as he has been holding out to see whether one of the Premier League’s top teams launch a bid to sign him.
The report claims that while Ralph Hasenhuttl is keen for Ings to stay put, the decision may be taken out of his hands with a bid of around £25-30m ‘almost impossible’ to reject from a Southampton perspective.
United would be a massive move for Ings to make, but at the end of the day, at this stage of his career, it would be the wrong move to make as he would get less game time than he is right now
So is a move to United really the right one to make, and not just financially?
