Man Utd chief Ed Woodward urged to complete two major signings for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Published

on

The United boss is eager to beef up the attacking options at his disposal, despite Bruno Fernandes taking Old Trafford by storm and the attacking trident of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood shining after lockdown.

But the coronavirus crisis has impacted the transfer market as club’s tighten their belts to combat lowered income streams since March.

Woodward, the club’s executive vice-chairman, warned that talk of sky-high transfer fees amid the pandemic was ignoring the financial realities of the situation facing the game.

Grealish is valued at £80m by Villa, who avoided relegation on the final day of the season, while Dortmund are looking for a package worth up to £100m for Sancho.

Despite the financial challenges in getting both players through the door, Giggs believes they would be terrific additions to Solskjaer’s squad.

The Old Trafford legend 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.”

“He’s loved there already and he’s got the fans on board.

“Could he find a way of going back there? That for me would be great for Tottenham.

“Even if it’s for two or three years, go back to where you made yourself, enjoy yourself and help Tottenham get back to being competitive.”

“But when you want to build something, when you want to have results, you buy a central defender nowadays.

“When you have Sergio Ramos, you win La Liga. When you have [Virgil] Van Dijk, you win the Premier League. When you have Marquinhos at Paris Saint-Germain, you win the Ligue 1.

“It seems to be that the tendency is to buy players, very expensive players, forwards, and forget the essential.

“The essential has always been like that.

“In Italy, you know if you defend well, you have a chance to win the Serie A. If you don’t have a good defence, you’re not going to get anything.”

Ahead of the match, Thomson said it was clear why the likes of Chelsea are tracking Havertz.

He said: “He’s a real top player, it’s there for everyone to see and I’ve got no doubt if he does go into a different team in Europe, whether he ends up in the English Premier League, I’m pretty sure he will take it by storm.

“He’s a real talent, I think unusual for a forward player, he’ll score goals with his head but he’ll also run in behind. He looks a real star.”

Former Rangers defender David Weir also praised the variety of Havertz.

“He does [score different types of goals], he can play in different positions around the front areas and that’s a real skill,” Weir said.
