News making rounds according to Sports Central has it that Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to switch to Jack Grealish, even if Manchester United end up signing Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho, although the Aston Villa star has been told he might not be a regular starter every week.
The confirmation of Champions League qualification has freed the Old Trafford club to be more ambitious in their transfer plans, as it’s promised to be a busy summer, and Solskjaer is working to improve his squad's depth.
This has seen him return back to Grealish, who is believed to be keen on the move. One possible complication is that the survival of Aston Villa means they don't have the same financial need to sale and therefore may charge a higher price and well over £50million. This could lead to the failure of a potential deal.
United have gotten cool on Grealish in recent months, but sources said Solskjaer is reassessing the situation after realizing how stressed his best XI is after the restart.
United are expected to complete Sancho's signing in the coming weeks, although they are still a long way from Dortmund's view for the player. The two clubs are said to be separated by around 10-15million pounds.
In the meantime, Solskjaer will try to allow around six players to leave, including Jesse Lingard and Phil Jones, as he’s poised to reshape his team.
Chris Smalling may return after an impressive loan spell with Roma. United are still yet to decide if they will move for a centre-half, as this may depend on circumstances and availability. Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake are being considered for a long time, but Manchester City are considering swooping for both.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer wants to give Axel Tuanzebe the chance to start next season after being impressed with his progress..
