Liverpool head for clash with Manchester United over son of ex-star

Liverpool have decided to join Manchester United in pursuit of former youth star Thomas Ince and will bid for him in the January transfer window, according to The Mirror.

Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers has reportedly singled out the winger for a return to the club that allowed him to leave last year because they did not think he was good enough.

Ince, son of former Liverpool and Manchester United star Paul, has since been sensational form for Blackpool – the team he left Merseyside for in a £250,000 deal, significantly less than the £6million they will reportedly offer the Seasiders for him.

This form has reportedly caught the eye of Sir Alex Ferguson and the Old Trafford boss was linked with a January offer too, with dad Paul Ince said to be trying to get the move pushed through.

United were appeared to be close to agreeing a deal for the 20-year-old, but the latest report suggests Liverpool’s attacking problems, and their subsequent plans to rectify them, will put them in direct conflict with their rivals.

It also claims Liverpool have a sell-on clause active on Ince, so will have 35 per cent of the reported £6million fee paid back to them, meaning the deal will cost more in the region of £4million.

However, Rodgers has admitted the Anfield owners have been looking to cut costs at the club and they may not be able to cope with Manchester United’s spending power, should the Premier League leaders resolve to gazump the Merseysiders.
