MANCHESTER UNITED legend Sir Alex Ferguson wants his old club to sign Aston Villa’s Scottish terrier John McGinn.

Fergie still has a say at Old Trafford and is lobbying hard for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to land the fiery midfielder, 24.

Veteran Fergie, 77, is close friends with McGinn’s grandad Jack.

And the former Old Trafford manager is pushing for United to pick McGinn for the midfield, where they lack his kind of energy and goal threat.
