Neville says Manchester United must choose between transfer target duo


Former Manchester United full-back Phil Neville believes the Red Devils need to choose between Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish.

It comes out amid planned summer transfer raids on Dortmund and Aston Villa from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

Solsjkaer’s interest appears to have cooled in light of Villa’s lofty valuation, although United are by no means out of the running.

Phil Neville has suggested Manchester United might not need Jack Grealish because Bruno Fernandes has been such a revelation since joining the club in January.

Villa owners Nassef Sawiris and Wes Edens have slapped an £80 million price tag on the 24-year-old playmaker after he fired Villa to safety on the final day against West Ham.

“I think the right-hand side is the biggest area where United need to improve. United need and an out and out right-sided winger. 

United have used a number of players on the right-wing with James Daniel, Juan Mata, and Mason Greenwood. Greenwood has particularly been fantastic with the right position linking up well with the other two forwards, Rashford and Martial, and producing exceptional display while also adding a number of goals to his tally.  

Neville added, “Sancho can play out wide on the right-wing and can play it really, really well. He is someone that fits the profile”.

“You think (Marcus) Rashford, (Mason) Greenwood, British players. And he is young and hungry. He fits into that.”

He added: “For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the recruitment is now massive. The recruitment last summer with Daniel James, Harry Maguire, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, they need to replicate that now.

“And I’m saying don’t go out there and buy the best stars, go out there and buy characters and hungry players.

“That’s what United have always been good at, buying hungry players.”
