Manchester United have reportedly decided to prioritise the signing of Jack Grealish in the summer ahead of James Maddison.
United are interested in both players, but Maddison is said to be close to signing a new contract at Leicester. Both players have been in fine form for their respective clubs this season, so much so they are in contention to receive England call-ups for this summer's Euro 2020 tournament.
The duo fit Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's preferred transfer target, being young, British and with Premier League experience - but that means they would both command large transfer fees.
Now, the Mirror say United will prioritise a huge summer bid for Villa captain Grealish over Maddison, given the Leicester man's contract situation and Grealish's consistent and improving form this season.
Meanwhile, United reportedly scouted Verona’s 19-year-old defender Marash Kumbulla at the weekend - and were so impressed they are ready to make an offer.
FCInterNews say he put in a fine performance as Verona drew 1-1 with Inter Milan last weekend. With a United scout apparently present, the report says the club will join the race for the defender this summer.
Inter and Napoli are among the other clubs linked with Kumbulla, so Verona are hopeful of starting an auction to get around €25-30m for the defender.
