Despite Man Utd failing to sign Jack Grealish in the last transfer window, the club has not given up on the midfielder.
Man Utd has several options in the midfield to pick. Their current midfielders include Van de Beek, Mc Tomminay, Fred, Matic, Fernandes and Paul Pogba who are all in good form. Ole Gunnar has the advantage of rotating the midfield at will.
The future of Paul Pogba at United is in question, with the player’s agent publicly admitting that he will leave the club in this January transfer window.
Ole Gunnar is a big fan of Jack Grealish and would love him to play for Man Utd.
“I don’t want to say too much about other teams’ players but of course he’s a player we know we have to look for,” the Norwegian said.
Grealish signed a new contract with Aston Villa in September last year, meaning it will be expensive to sign him in this transfer window. According to reports, the midfielder costs £100m.
United pulled back from signing Grealish when his asking price was around £65m. Man Utd signed Van de Beek instead who cost them £34.7m plus add-ons.
The club is also interested in signing young midfielders. They are now in advanced talks in their efforts to sign Ecuadorian footballer Moises Caicedo.
Manchester United vs Aston Villa
Manchester United will today face Aston Villa at Old Trafford in the Premier League. Ole Gunnar will be keen on how his target man plays against them.
United will level points with reigning PL champions, Liverpool, at the top of the table, awaiting to play their game in hand against Burnley on January 12th. United will then later face their rivals, Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are still enjoying the longest unbeaten run since 1999 under Ole Gunnar.
