Man Utd's position on Aguero's signing revealed

Solskjaer reveals Manchester United's stance on potential Aguero signing

April 3, 2021 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The Red Devlis' manager has come clean on what his side's position is on with regards to the availability of the Argentine striker this summer.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has come clean on the likelihood of his side securing the service of Sergio Aguero at the end of the season. The 48-year-old Norwegian coach has ruled out the possiblity of the Red Devils making a move for the Manchester City legend despite speculations suggesting that the Argentine striker may be interested in making the move across town.

After 10 years of service at the Etihad, Sergio Aguero is expected to finally close the chapter on his journey at Manchester City at the end of this season. Last week, the striker issued a statement in accordance to this and the Citizens equally responded, citing the projects being lined up to immortalize the the 32-year-old striker's legacy at the club. While he bows out as their all-time top-goalscorer, reports suggest that he could well remain in the Premier League despite interest from the likes of Barcelona and Paris Saint-German.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea have been cited as potential destinations for the player who has so far scored 257 goals in 385 appearances for Manchester City. Earlier this week, a report by English publication Mail revealed that the Blues are currently front-runners in the race as the attacker remains keen on playing in the Premier League. On the contrary, a move to Manchester United has also entered the conversation on some occasions and the Red Devils have finally issued a response to the rumor mill.

According to the club's manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, a move for Sergio Aguero is improbable as a result of his loyalty to Manchester City. In his pre-match press conference for United's clash with Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, he said: "When I played for Man United, if a rival club tried to sign me, and I had gone... well where's the loyalty?

"Loyalty is one of the values I really, really put highly. I wouldn't expect any player who has played for a club for 10 years to want to go to their local rivals.

"It's not for me. I know we're professionals, but when you play for Man United you don't go to Man City.

"I won't name names but you all know who I mean. Enough said."

Since 1996, no player has moved directly from Manchester City to Manchester United with Tony Coton being the last man to do so. Relatively, Carlos Tevez controversially switched red for blue in 2010, seven years after the legendary Kasper Schmeichel had done same.
