Manchester United make their intentions clear for the summer.

With Premier League football slowly but surely returning to normal, clubs will now be able to focus more heavily on the transfer window. Manchester United, in particular, will use the end of the season to learn more about where to strengthen in the transfer market.

It’s pretty clear that they will look to sign an attacking midfielder, as this is where the headlines have been pointing in recent weeks. With Paul Pogba thought to be on his way out, it seems only fair they sign a replacement.

Although, much of the confusion has come with the tossup between Jack Grealish and James Maddison. Two players that seem familiar at first and both will be fighting for a place in Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2021 squad.

However, it’s thought that Manchester United will finally make their decision. According to the Manchester Evening News, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has prioritised the signing of Jack Grealish over anyone else this summer, however, if Kai Havertz becomes available, then they will change their plans.

In ideal and more common times, United would have the means to sign both. However, with the Coronavirus market crash, it’s rare that a club will be able to make one blockbuster move, and impossible to make more than that. Without swap-deals or signing free agents, it just won’t happen.

Luckily, Manchester United do still have more funds than most, or so I would assume. They went into the pandemic as one of the wealthiest clubs in the world, and while they will accept their losses, they will still look to strengthen in the transfer market.

Jack Grealish walks into most Premier League sides, and he would definitely walk into the United XI. He is a productive attacking midfielder and for Aston Villa, a large majority of their play is run through him. If he can give a subpar Premier League team who have performed terribly this season a glimmer of hope, then just imagine how he would revitalise Solskjaer’s men.
