Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly wants his club to step up their recruitment plans as they consider a summer move for Jack Grealish.

The Aston Villa playmaker has been brilliant for his local club this season, scoring seven goals and registering six assists, establishing himself as one of the most talented players in the league as a result.

Therefore, Dean Smith’s men face a real battle to keep hold of Grealish in the upcoming transfer window, with the Red Devils circling.

A departure seems inevitable if Villa are relegated too, with the side currently 19th in the top-flight.

And, Solskjaer has explained that United need to use their strong financial situation to potentially take advantage as clubs face uncertain futures due to the Coronavirus crisis.

That could relate to Grealish and it’s fair to say the idea of the midfielder wearing a red shirt next season has not gone down well with Villa fans, although some weren’t convinced Solskjaer was on about the 24-year-old.

Here we look at the comments…

Will Jack Grealish be an Aston Villa player next season?
