Manchester United legend and Wales manager Ryan Giggs has advised the Red Devils to ensure they sign Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho this summer.
It’s understood Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified Sancho, 20, and Grealish, 24, as his priority targets this summer, as they plan to challenge Liverpool and Man City for the title next season.
Discussing the two Englishmen with the Webby and O’Neill YouTube channel, Giggs said:
“Two good players. I think the thing with Grealish is he’s obviously used to the Premier League and doesn’t need to adapt to it so that’s good.
“For me from the outside, it looks like he’s got the mentality to come to this place and not bother him. Certain players can get overawed.”
“Also, the good thing this year is he’s got ten goals and got into double figures so that would be one question mark I would have had with him: does he score enough goals? To get to double figures with no penalties for Villa is impressive.
“Sancho is quick, direct but also an intelligent player.
“What I like about him is when he gets into the areas with the final ball, he doesn’t panic. A lot of quick wide players sometimes do but he picks out the right pass.
“He’s someone who can counter-attack if we’re going to play that but also if a team are going to sit back, he can beat players and make things happen.
“They are two signings that may be available and if we’re able to get them, I would go and get them.”
Solskjaer hopes to wrap up an agreement for the youngsters as quickly as possible to avoid a repeat of last summer’s transfer saga involving Harry Maguire which resulted in United paying a world-record £80million fee for the defender.
