Louis van Gaal considering move for Burnley’s Danny Ings – report

Manchester United are considering a summer move for Burnley forward Danny Ings who will be available for a compensation figure of around £5m, report The Telegraph.

Mark Ogden suggests Louis van Gaal is interested in signing Ings due to Radamel Falcao’s unsuccessful loan spell at Man United.

Ings would be available in June when his contract expires but United would be obliged to pay compensation for the striker as he is a player under the age of 23.

Van Gaal recently sent chief scout Jim Lawlor to watch Ings play against Liverpool at Anfield after he scored at Old Trafford in the Premier League clash between United and Burnley earlier this season.

Ings certainly wouldn’t be the first name on the list of many United fans to bring in this summer but he’s been very impressive in the Premier League this season.

On top of Falcao’s struggles, Robin van Persie has endured a tough time of late and the Dutchman is currently sidelined with an ankle injury, which leaves United with an uncertain set of strikers going into next year.

Ings would inject some much needed vibrancy into United’s attack and any transfer would be relatively risk free due to the low fee.
