United aim to fund the deal by offloading Paul Pogba in the summer. The French World Cup winner is out injured and hasn’t featured for the Red Devils since December.

Real Madrid and Juventus are both keen on securing Pogba with United valuing the midfielder at £150million. Pogba will enter into his last season at United this summer. The club, however, have the option to extend his stay by another year.

The report goes on to say that Solksjaer will sanction the deal for the midfield duo once Pogba is sold.

Both Maddison and Grealish have been crucial for their club’s fortunes this season.

Leicester City have punched above their weight and Maddison has been a crucial component of Brendan Rodgers’ system. Villa would have surely been favourites for the drop if not for Grealish.

Whether United indeed sign them in the summer or not remains to be seen.
