Giggs discusses Manchester United targets Sancho and Grealish

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has discussed his former side’s reported interest in Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish, describing them as ‘two good players’.

Having secured a place in next seasons Champions League thanks to their third-placed finish, Manchester United are expected to be one of the busier clubs in this summers transfer window as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues his rebuild at Old Trafford.

United have been strongly linked with a move for England international Jadon Sancho, with the latest reports suggesting they are edging towards an agreement with Borussia Dortmund, while there has also been interest in Jack Grealish, though Aston Villa‘s reported £80 million valuation could scupper a deal.

Speaking about the Villa captain, Giggs believes that the 24-year-old has the right ‘mentality’ to fit in at Old Trafford having already proven his qualities in the Premier League.

“They’re two good players,” Giggs told Webby and O’Neill.

“The thing with Grealish is he’s obviously used to the Premier League and doesn’t need to adapt to it. For me, looking on the outside, he looks like he’s got the mentality to come to this place and it not bother him.

“Certain players can get overawed but I don’t think it would overawe him. The good thing this year is that he’s scored 10 goals and got into double figures, which is the one question mark I would have had with him, does he score enough goals?

“To get to double figures with no penalties is impressive.”

Speaking on Borussia Dortmund ace, Sancho, Giggs added: ” Sancho is quick, direct but also an intelligent player.

“What I like about him is, when he gets into those areas for the final ball, he doesn’t panic, which is what a lot of wide players sometimes do.

“He picks out the right pass and is someone who can counter-attack if we’re going to play that but also, if a team sits back, he can beat players and make things happen.

“Two signings that may be available and, if they are and we’re able to get them, then I would go and get them.”
