Man Utd told to forget signing Ince on the cheap
Ian Holloway has said that if Manchester United want to sign Thomas Ince from Blackpool, they are going to have to pay the player’s full worth, according to the Daily Mail.
Ince, a winger, is Blackpool’s top scorer so far this season with six goals, and has broken into the England U-21 side this season thanks to his performances under Holloway at Bloomfield Road. Manchester United are said to be just one of the teams now in the hunt for the 20-year-old, but Holloway is adamant that if Ince does leave, he will only do so at the right price.
The Mail puts Ince’s valuation at £6m, and Holloway added that he is not going to stand in the player’s way if he wants to leave should Blackpool fail to be promoted this season. But the manager added that Blackpool must receive a fair price, as it is the lifeblood of any club of their size.
Ince began his career at Liverpool, making the short trip to Blackpool in 2011 after failing to break into the first team at Anfield, while his father, Paul, was a title-winning midfielder with United and later played at Liverpool as well.
