Man United Plot Swoop for Former Liverpool Youngster as Nani Replacement

Old Trafford side target Blackpool starlet.

Manchester United are stepping up their checks on Blackpool’s exciting young winger Tom Ince – ahead of a potential swoop.

United’s leading spies are taking a big interest in the son of former Old Trafford idol Paul and could make an offer form the one-time Liverpool prospect in the next window or the summer.

Ince junior has already been a target for Swansea and Southampton, with the Seasiders holding onto him and the England under-21 cap also prepared to stay so far.

Sir Alex Ferguson will apparently look to make a concerted move for the Blackpool youngster if Nani is sent packing, which is looking increasingly likely after his less than effective start to the campaign.

One would imagine the Tangerines hopes of keeping the 20 year old would be dampened by the loss of Ian Holloway, with the eccentric boss leaving Bloomfield Road for Crystal Palace.

Sir Alex Ferguson has adopted a youthful transfer policy over the past few years and clearly has in recent seasons bought British as well as brought in players from the English ‘lower leagues’.

Sir Alex Ferguson has also seen the immediate impact the likes of Chris Smalling and Phil Jones had when they arrived at Old Trafford and brought in talented Crewe midfielder Nick Powell over the summer and has already seen the teenager net on his debut.

Ince has been a bit hit at Blackpool, netting 15 goals in 54 matches for the Seasiders, since moving to the club from Liverpool after failing to break into the Anfield first team picture.
