Man United looking to pair Sancho and Grealish
United are expected to complete the signing of Sancho in the coming weeks despite reportedly being ‘£10-15m’ off in terms of valuation however with Champions League qualification secured, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is understood to want to add serious depth to his squad.
The report outlines that Grealish is keen on a move to Old Trafford, despite not being guaranteed to start every week.
However, Aston Villa may not be forced to sell the 24-year-old due to their recent Premier League survival and, if they do let him go, it will be for a high price.
It is also expected that Solskjaer will allow both Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones to leave the club this summer.
