Manchester United target Ince will not come cheaply, warns Holloway

The 20-year-old has started the new campaign in blistering form and has attracted the interest of Sir Alex Ferguson's side, but the Tangerines' boss says he will get a fair price
Blackpool manager Ian Holloway has stated that Manchester United target Tom Ince will not leave the club cheaply, and that he will get a fair price for the winger.

As exclusively revealed by, Sir Alex Ferguson is preparing a £5million move for the winger in January, but Holloway has warned any potential suitors that even though he would not stand in the player's way if a club of that size came calling, that he has to keep the best interests of the club at heart.

"I can't keep anybody. I am working with them to get them to a Man United or Arsenal,' Holloway told reporters.

"That's what I want to do for these boys. I have got to keep turning them out and that's how it is.

"If we are not successful this year, do I want to stand in [Ince's] way? Probably not. But we deserve a fair amount of money for him."

The 49-year-old manager believes that Ince, the son of former England and Manchester United midfielder Paul, is good enough to represent his country at senior level now before arguing that his former club Liverpool would love to have him back on their books after his successful stint at the Seasiders.

He added: "What held him back was he went to a club that had an academy and there was no way through. He got fed up with that so he came and learnt his trade.

"God knows what he could do with one of their [Liverpool] shirts on now. He has been absolutely unplayable for us and has been outstanding in such a short period of time.

"Lord knows what he could do with an England shirt on his back now. His end product is absolutely top, top drawer.

"I don't think the other two flying wingers [Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott] are any better than him.

"It is because they play for Arsenal. Incey has been creating and scoring. In other words, if Arsene Wenger bought him, he'd be good enough to start for England."
