Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is pushing his former club to sign Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn this summer, according to The Sun.
United manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer is believed to be in touch with his former boss regularly and the 77-year-old is said to be friends with McGinn's grandad Jack and Ferguson believes 24-year-old McGinn would bring energy to United's midfield.
The Scot impressed once again on Saturday as he scored an eye-catching goal in his side's 4-1 friendly victory over Charlton at The Valley.
Villa will not leave McGinn to leave for cheap after winning promotion to the Premier League and want £50million for him.
United could now sanction a move for him after Ferguson offered his seal of approval over a possible transfer.
He is not the only midfielder United have been eyeing this summer — they want the likes of Sean Longstaff, Bruno Fernandes, and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.
They know they could lose Paul Pogba this summer if Real Madrid meets their asking price for the France international.
United have also asked to be kept in the loop over Christian Eriksen, who could leave Spurs during the window.
