Not Aguero - Manchester United were interested in signing Man City star

Published Add your comment

The internet is overflowing with claims made by Sir Alex Ferguson in his new book, so guess what? Today we lead our round-up with a claim made by Sir Alex Ferguson. The latest interesting number to do the rounds focuses on the rumour that Manchester United looked into the possibility of signing Vincent Kompany while the Scot was in charge, with the Belgian named on a list of possible transfer targets from way back in 2004. Of course Kompany ended up with Manchester City and the rest, as they so often say, is history. Two of the other names on said list were Gabriel Heinze and Gerard Pique - that alone makes for interesting reading. Back to the present and Louis van Gaal has confirmed he doesn’t need either Jesse Lingard or James Wilson for United’s forthcoming Capital One Cup clash against Ipswich Town. Van Gaal looks likely to field a relatively strong starting XI, but it won’t feature the two aforesaid starlets, as the Dutchman has confirmed.
