Manchester United players are hoping to convince manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to sign Aston Villa attacking midfielder Jack Grealish this summer, according to The Telegraph.
However, the Norwegian is keen on Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho instead and is looking to revive his interest in the England international after missing out on him last summer.
Man Utd stars who have faced Grealish or played with him at England consider him an appealing summer signing.
Both players are valued at around £75 million, and they do have admirers at Old Trafford as the club look to bolster their squad to mount a strong title challenge next term.
The Villa skipper is one of the players Man City are considering buying this summer as they aim to defend the Premier League title and also impress again in Europe next season.
Grealish’s absence towards the end of the campaign derailed Dean Smith’s side, and their European ambitions faded away as a result.
Villa are not likely to be open to cashing in on the England international, but they could be forced to if Man City or Man Utd meet their demands and the player asks to leave.
The 25-year-old scored six goals and assisted 10 others in 26 top-flight games this term, and Villa only won three of the 12 games he missed, losing six.
They eventually finished in 11th place in the Premier League table, and the lure of Champions League football could see Grealish dream of linking up with his Three Lions teammates at Man Utd or Man City.
