McGinn was spotted playing football in Scotland by Jenks and signed for Villa last year. Ferguson reportedly tried and failed to get United to move for McGinn during the summer, with Villa demanding a whopping £50million for the 24-year-old. Jenks claimed Ferguson is a big fan of McGinn and will be re-iterating to United that they should sign the Scotsman.
