Ryan Giggs urged Man Utd to sign world-class English pair

By | August 9, 2020

Ryan Giggs believes that Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho would be two excellent signings for his former club Man Utd.

The 20-times English champions are bound to be rumoured with a whole host of players in the coming weeks and months as they look to strengthen their team ahead of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s second full campaign at the club.

The Red Devils will have the lure of Champions League football to attract potential new signings in the summer after Solskjaer’s side finished in third place in the English top-tier this season.

Grealish and Sancho have both been touted as potential transfer targets for the Red Devils this summer as Solskjaer plans to strengthen his team.

Now, Manchester United legend Giggs has claimed that his belief that the English duo would be good signings.

Speaking in an interview quoted by Metro, Giggs said of Sancho and Grealish: “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 ten 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 them 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 counter-attack 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.”
