Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, former Southampton midfielder Carlton Palmer has questioned why Danny Ings would want to leave his old side for Manchester United or Tottenham this summer.
Ings is one striker Manchester United are said to be looking at as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bolster his options up front.
As for Tottenham, Ings has been a reported target for the north London club for a while now.
Palmer, though, is not too convinced the 28-year-old will get regular game time at either side.
On Ings’ future and talk of a potential move to Manchester United or Tottenham, the ex-Southampton player said:
“Why would you want to go somewhere and not be a first–team regular? He’s at that stage of his career now [where he should be wanting to play].
“For sure, he’s going to move because there’s a reason why he’s not signed his contract – something’s sorted.
“The only reason why you go to those places now is because it’s a bumper payday.”
At Manchester United, perhaps Ings may fancy his chances against an ageing Edinson Cavani, who still managed to impress in the recently concluded season, scoring 17 goals in all competitions.
Regarding Tottenham, though, should Harry Kane remain at the club, it is hard to imagine the England international getting much minutes on the pitch there.
