Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer denies the chances for signing Sergio Aguero this summer.
Ever since Manchester City announced that their legendary striker Sergio Aguero is leaving the club after ten years, a lot of top European and South American clubs have been linked to signing him.
Out of many suitors, there were also rumors if Manchester United is signing the Argentine forward who has played for the rivals for the past decade and hunted the Red Devils multiple times. However, United's manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not a fan of giving his fans false hope as he outright denied the chances of signing the attacker.

There have been a few players who have jumped camps from Manchester City to Manchester United and vice versa in the past, such as Peter Schmeichel, Owen Hargreaves, and Carlos Tevez. Despite a long list of players who have represented both the Manchester clubs, Solskjaer said that he values loyalty more and will respect Sergio by not making any attempts.
"When I played for Man Utd if a rival club would try to sign me and I'd gone to a rival club, where's the loyalty?" Solskjaer said. Moreover, he also said that he doesn't expect any player that has played for a club for ten years to want to go to a local rival.'

Even Arsenal's manager Mikel Arteta also ruled out the chances of signing the Manchester City forward. Out of the Premier League clubs, Chelsea seems keen to sign the striker since their summer signing Timo Werner hasn't found any luck in front of the goal.
