Last month, Manchester United legend Roy Keane commented that Aston Villa hitman Ollie Watkins was worthy of playing for one of the top Premier League teams including Manchester United after his historic 27-goal haul this season.

TalkSPORT now reports that Watkins indeed does fit the profile for the kind of striker Ratcliffe is looking for: an experienced older striker for Hojlund to learn and grow off.

It, however, may be a very difficult deal to pull through after Aston Villa just made it into the Champions League and United virtually with zero chance of making it into Europe.

A lot may need to be moved around if Man United are to go through with a bid for Watkins putting into mind their massive wage bill and the thin line they are walking with regard to FFP regulations.

INEOS have already began making plans for this already letting go of top earner Rapha Varane and there already are talks of other top earners like Casemiro and Rashford being on offer this summer.
