Man Utd chief Ed Woodward and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer desperate to sign one player

Manchester United chief Ed Woodward and boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer are desperate to sign Jadon Sancho this summer. The Borussia Dortmund star has been tipped to head to the Premier League at the end of the season.

And according to the Mirror, United chief Woodward and boss Solskjaer are desperate to land Sancho this summer.

The United board want to get the deal done, even if it will cost £100-plus to land the winger.

Should United fork out over £100m for the 20-year-old, Sancho would become their record signing.

The fee would eclipse the £89m they paid for Paul Pogba back in 2016.

United are ready for a busy summer transfer window, with the Red Devils also in the hunt for Jack Grealish and James Maddison.

A lot has been made of United’s transfer plans, with Rio Ferdinand claiming the Red Devils should go for the Aston Villa man over the Leicester star.

“Oh good question, would you want Grealish or Maddison at Man United?” Ferdinand said on Instagram Live.

“Oh they’re very different, Maddison’s a great passer, sets up great goals, great from set-pieces, good mover, gets his shots off, assists well as well.

“The difference with Grealish, he does all of that but he can dribble, he can manipulate, he can drag people to him, he can bring two or three players to him which gives someone else space.

“And I think in a big team, when you’ve got a player who can manipulate and unease the opposing players and defenders by dragging them out because they know what he’s capable of, the space that gives others it just opens the game up man.

“For that reason, that’s why I’d probably veer towards Grealish if I’m honest.

“I think for England as well, it would be nice to get them both in, but if I had to pick one of the two for England, I’d probably go for Grealish.”
