Former Manchester United star Ryan Giggs has urged the club to “go and get” both Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho in the summer transfer window.
United have been linked with moves for a host of players recently have links to Grealish and Sancho have been intensifying since the domestic leagues ended.
Moves for the English internationals may not come easy with both Aston Villa and Borussia Dortmund expected to demand huge fee for their assets.
The now Wales manager is hoping that the Red Devils will have funds available for the signing of the pair as he believes they will be great additions to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad ahead of next season.
He told the Webby and O’Neill Youtube channel: “Two good players. I think the thing with Grealish is he’s obviously used to the Premier League and doesn’t need to adapt to it so that’s good. For me from the outside, it looks like he’s got the mentality to come to this place and not bother him. Certain players can get overawed.
“Also, the good thing this year is he’s got 10 goals and got into double figures so that would be one question mark I would have had with him: does he score enough goals? To get to double figures with no penalties for Villa is impressive. Sancho is quick, direct but also an intelligent player.
“What I like about him is when he gets into those areas with the final ball, he doesn’t panic. A lot of quick wide players sometimes do but he picks out the right pass.
“He’s someone who can counterattack if we’re going to play that but also if a team are going to sit back, he can beat players and make things happen. They are two signings that may be available and if we’re able to get them, I would go and get them.”
Giggs also talked about the need for his former side to bring in quality additions to their squad with Champions League set to return at Old Trafford.
He added: “With the lads getting a bit tired, having that strength in depth where you’re able to change it and you’re not really weakening… I think that’s what City have had. [Leroy] Sane doesn’t play and [Riyad] Mahrez comes in or Bernardo Silva doesn’t play and [Phil] Foden comes in.
“So that sort of thing where it doesn’t weaken them and you’re able to keep them fresh. And also, something I experienced at United, every day in training it’s competitive. The quality of training goes up because of the quality of players that are coming in. ‘
“All of a sudden, the players that have done so well at the end of the season are looking over their shoulders.You sign Sancho and you sign Grealish, everyone’s looking over their shoulders and thinking: ‘Is he going to be taking my place? No he’s not. I want to take it onto that next level’.
“So you need that strength in depth but also quality and good lads as well.”
