Man United are interested in Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn this summer, according to a report in England
Manchester United are preparing a bid for Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn, according to a report in England.
The Sun is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on the Scotland international but Aston Villa’s asking price could be a sticking point.
The same article states that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big admirer of the box-to-box midfielder following his impressive performances in the Championship.
According to the same article, Aston Villa are set to demand £50m for the Scot despite signing McGinn for just £2.75m from SPL club Hibernian a year ago.
The Sun add that Aston Villa are hoping to tie down McGinn to a new long-term deal after he scored in their 2-1 victory over Derby County in the Championship play-off final at Wembley.
Manchester United completed their second summer signing on Saturday when Aaron Wan-Bissaka sealed a £50m move to the Red Devils from Crystal Palace after weeks of speculation.
The 20-time English champions have already signed Wales international Daniel James in £15m deal from Championship outfit Swansea City last month.
Manchester United finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a place in the Champions League.
The Red Devils failed to win a trophy for the second successive season.
