Man Utd boss Ralf Rangnick targeting John McGinn transfer to replace Paul Pogba – but Aston Villa star could cost £50m

JOHN McGINN is still on Manchester United’s radar as they prepare for a new future under Ralf Rangnick.

United are in the market for midfield reinforcements as doubts continue to surround the long-term futures of the likes of Paul Pogba, Jesse Lingard and Donny van de Beek.

Amadou Haidara will become Rangnick’s first signing next month – if Manchester United pay his £32million release clause now.

And England duo Kalvin Phillips and Declan Rice have been highlighted as potential options to anchor the base of the midfield next season.

But Aston Villa star McGinn has also caught the eye with his influential performances for club and country.

SunSport previously revealed United’s interest in the summer of 2019, with Sir Alex Ferguson a big fan of McGinn.

Villa would not have considered a bid of less than £50m back then — and would want even more now.

McGinn has three and a half years left to run on the deal he signed at Villa Park last December.

The Scotland international, 27, has scored three goals and provided one assist in 13 Premier League games so far this term.

His ability on the ball plus coolness under pressure is something United scouts are understood to have noted.

That’s in addition to his ability to play a high pressing style so valued by new boss Rangnick.
