Manchester United transfer news: Blackpool Ace still on Old Trafford radar

Thomas Ince BlackpoolManchester United are set to step up their interest in England U21 star Thomas Ince with Nani thought to be edging towards the Old Trafford exit door, according to the Daily Mirror.

The Blackpool star has put in a number of impressive performances this season as the former Liverpool youth academy product looks set to live up to his billing as one of the brightest talents in English football.

It is thought that the Red Devils are finally set to make their move and they have been tracking the son of former United legend Paul Ince since the summer transfer window.

At the time, the Seasiders were keen to fight off Premier League interest, with the 20-year-old being viewed as pivotal to their promotion bid.

They were proven correct with Ince scoring 7 goals in the first 12 league games of this season, including a smart finish against Derby in a 4-1 victory on Saturday.

However, now that Manchester United are expected to come calling, the interest could prove too much for the Championship club to ignore.

Former Blackpool boss Ian Holloway believes the player has the capability to emulate and even overtake current England internationals Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.

The Daily Mirror believes that a bid hinges upon whether Nani decides to stay at Old Trafford with the Portuguese winger currently facing an uncertain future.

Sir Alex Ferguson fuelled fresh speculation about the former Sporting Lisbon ace, after he reacted angrily to the mistake the 25-year-old made in the Capital One Cup 4th round clash with Chelsea which helped the Blues score a late equaliser and catapult them to an extra time victory.
