Man Utd to buy English Messi for Nani: Tom Ince

Nani might still be on the bench, but a January sighting might solve Sir Alex Ferguson’s problem with the winger.


Paul Ince’s son Tom Ince looks like the perfect answer to United’s own youth revolution and the problem of being short on the wings.

Juventus seem eager to sweep Nani away from the Premier League and Sir Alex has already spoken about young Ince following in his father’s footsteps at United.

Ince, currently at Blackpool, has been rated better than Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott by manager Ian Holloway and his pedigree will be a bug draw.

With Ashely Young and Valencia both coming back from injuries, Ince might be the Nani answer.

However, Blackpool boss Ian Holloway was quoted by The Sun as saying Tom Ince will not be sold on the cheap.

Holloway is reported to value Ince, 20, at more than £10m.

Holloway said: “I can’t keep our players, but I’m working with them to get them to a United or an Arsenal.

“I don’t think Oxlade-Chamberlain and Walcott are better than him. If Arsenal had bought him, he would be playing for England now,” he said.

The ball is now clearly in United’s half.

Another Ince perfect move for Fergie and Old Trafford.
