Sir Alex Ferguson will do all he can to make Manchester United sign John McGinn, according to Bobby Jenks, the ex Aston Villa scout who helped to bring the Scot to England.
Rumour has it that Manchester United is interested in the 24-year-old midfielder.
Reports had it last summer that the Red Devils were working on a £50 million ($63m) deal for the player.
Since John is from Scotland, ex-manager Alex Ferguson has been watching him closely and Bobby Jenks believes he will talk the club into signing him in the coming months.
His words, “He’s up there with the best-performing midfielders in the division.
“Wait until he’s had a year at that level and then we can say more.
“What I do know is that Sir Alex Ferguson is wondering why Manchester United let a talented Scottish boy slip through. He’ll be keeping a close eye on him that’s for sure and if he continues the way he is, you can bet he’ll be telling his pals at United, too.”
On the type of player John is, “He was a typical Scottish boy with the heart of a lion. I noticed that from a young age.
“He was a box-to-box player who could win the ball, fire it up to the striker and support him.
“I felt he could add goals to his game and was dangerous around the edge of the box. He’s showing that now.
“He has a great engine and attitude. Yes, he got a wee bit agitated and would nip in every now and then. He picked up some bookings but that’s just his style. He wants to win the ball back and does it so well.
“Villa needed someone like him. They didn’t have any player quite like him. Last season he put himself about in the Championship to show what he was made of and I’m just pleased it’s worked out for him and the club now.”
