Solskjaer told he doesn’t need to sign £80m transfer target because of two Manchester United players

Garth Crooks has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer he may not need the signing of Aston Villa star Jack Grealish because of the emerging partnership of Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba. The duo played together for the first time on Friday as United drew 1-1 with Tottenham. Fernandes has been a key star since joining United from Sporting Lisbon in January. He impressed again in this match, scoring the equaliser from the spot. Crooks says that he doesn’t think United need Grealish, with the Pogba and Fernandes partnership potentially enough for Solskjaer’s side in that area of the pitch. He said: “With Fernandes and Pogba in the side, they suddenly look like a midfield to be taken seriously as opposed to what we saw earlier in the season – a group of soccer adolescents hurriedly thrown together and learning on the job. With a fit Pogba and Fernandes running the show, they no longer need Jack Grealish. The likes of Scott McTominay, Fred and Nemanja Matic are the real support acts.” Source: Caughtoffside
