Manchester United are said to be considering a move for Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn, with the Red Devils keen on adding another Scottish midfielder to their ranks.
Having failed to put together any significant Premier League title challenge this season, United will be looking boosting their options through the transfer market this month and in the summer. The club is facing a number of departures, with France international Paul Pogba keen on a move away from the Old Trafford. Netherlands midfielder Donny van de Beek has also been the talk of town, with the Dutchman said to be frustrated with lack of game time.
According to The Telegraph, United have put McGinn on their radar and are currently weighing up on whether they can match Villa's £40 million valuation for him as a potential summer signing. The 27-year-old's contract expires in 2024. He is highly regarded at Villa Park, having bagged 15 goals in 122 appearances since his arrival in 2018.
His impressive is reported to have attracted legends (and fellow countrymen) Sir Alex Ferguson and Darren Fletcher, manager and technical director respectively.
This comes at a time the Red Devils are experiencing a major crisis, with reports of a divided dressing room and growing discontent between players and interim manager Ralf Rangnick making headlines. Will he be a good signing? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
