Former United greats Paul Ince and Dimitar Berbatov have both urged Old Trafford boss Solskjaer to swoop for Aguero.
But the Norwegian insisted no player should move between the rivals.
He said: “I wouldn’t expect any player who has played for a club for ten years to want to go to their local rivals. It’s not for me.
“When I played for Manchester United, if a rival club tried to sign me and I had gone — well, where’s the loyalty?
“Loyalty is one of the values I really, really put highly.
“I know we are professionals but when you play for United you don’t go to City.

“We have had examples of that and I didn’t really agree with it.
“I won’t name names but you all know who I mean — enough said.”
Aguero has won four Premier League titles, an FA Cup and five League Cups during his amazing City career, including his iconic winning goal that broke Red Devil hearts in 2012.
And many believe he could add some much needed quality to United’s front line.
However, Carlos Tevez enraged Reds fans when he controversially switched to the Etihad in 2009.
Treble-winning keeper Peter Schmeichel’s move to City seven years earlier also left everyone at United fuming.
Schmeichel, then 36, quit Old Trafford for Sporting Lisbon after the 1999 Treble, claiming the Premier League was too demanding.
Yet after two years he returned to England with Aston Villa and after 12 months joined City for a season.
Solskjaer would not refer to him by name and it soured relations with his one-time team-mate.
