Many Manchester United fans have been discussing the news that the Red Devils are no longer interested in Jack Grealish, after David Ornstein exclusively revealed the transfer update in a Q&A via The Athletic.
Sources told the journalist the board would prefer to sign a holding midfielder instead of the Aston Villa talisman this summer. Grealish has been heavily tipped to move to Old Trafford after putting in a series of impressive performances for Dean Smith’s Claret and Blues throughout the season, but it appears Ed Woodward has now changed his mind.
The 24-year-old has scored 7 goals and provided 6 assists in 26 appearances in the Premier League for Smith’s side, taking 2.1 shots per game, averaging 2.7 key passes, and making at least 2.2 dribbles on average in the English top flight so far (WhoScored).
After months of rampant speculation, it seems Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t consider the Englishman as a top priority, as the Norwegian has identified another area in his squad that needs an immediate overhaul.
As expected, Ornstein’s comments have triggered a debate amongst a large section of the United faithful, with one fan suggesting the club should “sign up Ndidi ASAP.”
Wilfred Ndidi has created just 2 goals and 1 assist in 23 games for Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City, producing 0.8 shots on average, averaging 0.5 key passes, and completing 0.7 dribbles per game via WhoScored.
Take a look at the some of the different reactions down below…

Nobody can afford Pogba this summer and we need a DM

Lads calm down.. just be happy that we’re in for a midfielder at all. We need one, whether it’s an offensive or defensive midfielder. If Pogba stays, there’s no need for another offensive midfielder, so a defensive one would make sense. ZAKARIAAAAAAAA

Hope it’s Ndidi

That’s what I thought. We need Partey more than Grealish.

United fans, do you think the board should sign Wilfred Ndidi in the upcoming transfer window?
