Ryan Giggs has delivered his verdict on Manchester United targeting Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish in the transfer market this summer.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is believed to have been granted a £140million war chest to turn his squad into Premier League title challengers ahead of next season.
Borussia Dortmund have a slapped a £100m price tag on star winger Sancho, while Aston Villa want around £75m for midfielder and skipper Grealish.
Red Devils legend Giggs reckons both players have the mentality to thrive at Old Trafford, and hopes his former teammate Solskjaer is given the funds to sign them.
“Two good players,” Giggs told the Webby and O’Neill Youtube channel.
“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.”
Former winger Giggs hailed Sancho for his technical ability, but also highlighted a cool head which marks out the best widemen.
“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,” Giggs said.
“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.”
