Manchester United should go all out to sign Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish this summer, according to club legend Ryan Giggs.

Ahead of the summer, Manchester United are intent on bolstering their attacking options. They’ve made no secret about their interest in Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils are growing confident they can sign the winger with a transfer valuation between both clubs believed to be the final hurdle.

Asides Sancho, another attacking name linked with the Manchester outfit is Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish.

United were also strongly linked with the midfielder but reports claim interest in the Villa captain has cooled off after the club set an £80m valuation on the player.

Regardless of what it might cost, club legend Ryan Giggs has asked the club to strongly do what they can to sign both players.

“Two good players,” Wales boss Giggs told the Webby and O’Neill YouTube channel. “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 10 goals [in all competitions] 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 those 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.”

Many think Jack Grealish won’t be a guaranteed starter should he join United and he should consider snubbing the Red Devils.
