Manchester United are reportedly focusing on other transfers and ‘not discussing’ a potential move for Jack Grealish.
Aston Villa star Grealish has been linked with a move to Old Trafford after playing a key role in helping his side survive in the Premier League.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen to improve his side having seen the Red Devils knocked out at the semi-final stage of three competitions.
Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho is still on United’s radar despite the Bundesliga outfit insisting he will not leave.
And The Athletic claim that United have more important matters than Grealish and that a deal for the Villa midfielder is “not even being discussed”.
Solskjaer had discussed United’s transfer interests following defeat to Sevilla in the last four of the Europa League.
“It’s going to be a strange summer,” Solskjaer said. “We’ve only got a couple of weeks away from each other before we get going again. That’s going to be a mental challenge.
“Of course, we’re going to keep pushing and keep demanding more of the players we have but still we’re looking to improve.
“It’s a strange one. The league starts very quickly but the market is open for so long. We’ve got to be smart and clever.

“Well, I cannot say when or if transfers are going to be done. We’ll need to look at it and we’ll have to sit down.
“It’s a quick turnaround and we’ve got to be 100 per cent sure when we make those deals.”
Though Michael Owen believes Grealish wants a move to Old Trafford.
The former United striker said: “I think he’s [Grealish] after Manchester United as well. I’m told he has his heart set on Manchester United. I’d be surprised if he went anywhere else.
“He’ll be more expensive now to possible suitors. There is that tie now that it’s his team and they’re still in the Premier League.
"It would have been an easier decision if they went down. You can’t have someone like that playing in the Championship. He’s a top player, he would suit an awful lot of teams; he’s exceptional."
