Danny Ings wants to join Manchester United

Burnley striker Danny Ings will join Manchester United ahead of Liverpool if it comes down to a straight choice between the two this summer.

That is according to an exclusive report from the Daily Star, who believe that the feeling at Turf Moor is that Ings has his heart set on a move to Old Trafford this summer.

Ings is out of contract this summer and free to talks over a summer transfer, although Burnley's relegation dogfight is likely his primary focus at this stage. One look at United's struggles up front will be huge cause of optimism when it comes to picking a new club though, because in all honesty Ings has a real chance of sealing a dream summer switch to the Theatre of Dreams at this stage.

Big decision to be made

The 22-year-old has been tracked closely by United over the last few weeks, but their scouts are not alone in making the trip to watch a forward with huge potential.

Chelsea, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are also monitoring Ings, while Real Sociedad boss David Moyes wants to persuade him that La Liga offers a fresh challenge that would serve as the perfect platform to improve next season.

United move a genuine possibility

Ings has every right to take his time and give every option serious consideration as he ponders his next move, but if United are serious then it will be very difficult to turn them down.

The Clarets talisman has nine goals in the top flight this season, one fewer than United's top scorer Robin van Persie and five more than Radamel Falcao.

There's no question that United have lacked impetus in the final third at time this season, in particular a forward willing to run in-behind and stretch teams to create space.

Ings is by no means rapid but would certainly bring a tremendous work ethic to United's frontline, which is exactly why he's the kind of player the Red Devils should be looking at.

Liverpool are serious about winning the race for his signature though, so if Van Gaal is serious about landing a player who is by no means a marquee name but offers a genuine alternative to what he currently has then its time to get moving.
