The former Liverpool player has rejected a new four-year deal and, as things stand, the player will be available on a free transfer next summer.
Supporters on Twitter had a mixed response to United’s reported interest in Ings. Some believe he could be a good option, as he is a proven goalscorer and won’t cost a great deal, while others don’t think he is needed:
If Edinson Cavani does leave Old Trafford at the end of next season then Ings could be seen as a potential replacement, in addition to signing another more high-profile forward.
Southampton are willing to allow Ings to run down his contract so it is a distinct possibility that the England international will be available for free next summer. For someone with his goalscoring record, he could be a bargain.
