Two Aston Villa players are reportedly on the transfer shortlist at Manchester United ahead of the January transfer window.
This is according to the publication from the stables of the Birmingham Mail which revealed key Aston Villa players Scott McGinn and Jack Grealish are being targeted by the Red Devils who are keen to bolster their squad after an underwhelming start to the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.
Manchester United have already lost four league games this term and that has seen them drop out of the race for the Premier League title, while their Champions League hope is hanging by a thread.
The Red Devils are nine points off the last Champions League spot presently occupied by champions Manchester City.

In addition, they are 18 points adrift of league leaders Liverpool.
Manchester United have drawn up an eight-man transfer shortlist and both Jack Grealish and Scott McGinn feature heavily.
Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish has been a key performer for the team this season though he has missed the last three games with a calf injury.
He scored four goals and also provided four assists in 12 games in all competitions before the injury.
On his part, Scott McGinn has scored three league goals for Aston Villa this season.
