Manchester United’s transfer moves may be their best route yet to bring into effect a more eased form of short-term success.
While the work of their exceptional youth academy is evident in the blooming success of the likes of Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay, and Mason Greenwood, it is evident that recruitment still remains a strong point.
This is especially important given how the transition period repeatedly being touted as the Red Devils’ slow ascent back to their glory days is taking much longer than anticipated by the fans.
British and young is the formula that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and company are still eager to stick by, despite this winters’ acquisitions Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo defying both features.
However, interest in joining the Red Devils still remains high despite their fall in stock.
In fact, as per MEN, Jack Grealish has told his friends that he would ‘relish’ a move to Manchester United in the summer. The 24-year-old attacking midfielder is a boyhood fan of the club and has swiftly emerged on to their radar ahead of more expensive options like James Maddison.
Even though Fernandes was secured in the window that just closed, a player of Grealish’s abilities is still vital to United, particularly given Paul Pogba’s uncertain future at Old Trafford.
Further still, recent reports also indicated that he had his eyes on United if a move away from Aston Villa ever materialized. However, the fact that Grealish is bound to the relegation-prone side until 2023 does make matters quite tricky.
It is evident that where Villa end up next season will have a massive role to play in any probable move. The Bruno Fernandes saga has also proven that a player’s desire to move alone can mean very little in the long run if individual clubs are unable to smoothen out a cohesive deal.
