Manchester United could sell both Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard this summer, according to a report.

Manchester United could reportedly sell Andreas Pereira and Jesse Lingard during this summer's transfer window as they close in on a deal for Aston Villa's Jack Grealish.

The Red Devils have allegedly stepped up their interest in Grealish as they attempt to ensure that a summer transfer is in place.

According to The Express, a move for the Villa captain is likely to impact on both Pereira and Lingard, who could now be sold ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Neither was involved in United's Premier League clash with Watford on Sunday afternoon despite head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirming after the match that both were available for selection.

The recent signing of Bruno Fernandes has pushed the duo down the pecking order at Old Trafford, and Grealish's expected arrival could seemingly come at a cost for the struggling pair.

Pereira has only managed one goal and three assists in 23 Premier League appearances this season, while Lingard has not contributed a single goal or assist in his 20 league outings during the 2019-20 campaign.

The Red Devils will be looking to book their spot in the last-16 stage of the Europa League on Thursday night when they welcome Club Brugge to Old Trafford for the second leg of their last-32 affair.
