Manchester United To Fund Jack Grealish Move By Axing Two Players

Manchester United are preparing to complete their stunning swoop for Jack Grealish by axing two players from the squad.

The 24-year-old Aston Villa captain has been heavily linked with the Red Devils and could leave his current side should they fail to avoid Premier League relegation.

And The Daily Express reports that Jesse Lingard and Andreas Pereira are both on the chopping block to release the funds for Grealish.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer left both of the United players out of the squad in last weekend's 3-0 victory over Watford at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer was also frustrated with Lingard's performance last month in United's League Cup exit to fierce rivals Manchester City.

Lingard teamed up with super-agent Mino Raiola and he has been linked with an exit from the club this summer.

The 27-year-old United player, whose contract expires in 2021, has been linked with Atletico Madrid and Roma.

Solskjaer is keen to push ahead with his United overhaul in the summer and is already thrilled with the immediate impact of January signing Bruno Fernandes.

"If Solskjaer was handed £250 million to go out and sign central defender Kalidou Koulibaly, playmaker Jack Grealish and Jadon Sancho up front, Solskjaer's best team would be capable of giving Liverpool and Manchester City a run for their money next season," he said.

The Red Devils progressed to the next stage of the Europa League after they thrashed Club Brugge 5-0 at Old Trafford on Thursday.
