Manchester United still keen on signing Aston Villa attacker

McGinn still on Man United's radar

Manchester United are still understood to hold an interest in signing John McGinn from Aston Villa.

The Scotland international made an impressive beginning on Villa's return to the top-flight but he remained an influential figure in the midfield before the ankle fracture at the end of 2019.

As a result, it appeared that United's interest in the midfielder had faded but The Sun claims that the club have not ruled out the possibility of signing him when the transfer window reopens.

Aside from the Red Devils, Newcastle United have also been credited with an interest in the 25-year-old, who has contributed three goals and two assists in the league this term.

He is currently valued at around £35m but the Villains could be compelled to accept a lesser figure, suppose they fail to preserve their top-flight status beyond the current season.

McGinn has not played a single game for the Villains since the turn of the year but he is expected to return to first-team action when the season recommences after the coronavirus shutdown.
