Agent McIntosh: Man Utd could've signed Aguero for €3.5M

British agent Barry McIntosh has revealed how Manchester United could've signed Manchester City star Sergio Aguero for just €3.5 million.

McIntosh blames UK work permit laws for such deals failing to materialise.

He told the Mirror: "I remember when I was in Argentina scouting, and I recommended Aguero to Sir Alex's brother, Martin Ferguson, to take him to Manchester United.

"Martin went and saw him play for Independiente against Huracan and Aguero was available for €3.5million as a 17-year-old.

"Aguero has gone on to play for Atletico Madrid and is now at Man City, which is ironic."
