The Red Devils were strongly linked to a decision by the 24-year-old midfielder and Solskjaer called on executive vice president Ed Woodward to inquire about Grealish last summer and in the January window.
Villa was reluctant to lose his captain and rejected both approaches, but Grealish’s future with the Birmingham club remains uncertain whether or not they avoid relegation from the Premier League.
And despite Grealish recently attending a party just hours after urging fans to stay home to support the NHS and save lives amid the coronavirus epidemic, Solskjaer remains determined to bring the star to Old Trafford .
The Norwegian has been impressed with Grealish’s leadership qualities, according to ESPN, and is ready to move to United.
He is supposed to already visit Manchester regularly to avoid the attention he draws to Birmingham.
Grealish, who joined Villa’s academy at just six years old, is under contract until 2023 and the club is expected to demand at least £ 60 million to take him to Villa Park.
However, heads of the United States anticipate a reduction in market transfer costs once the coronavirus pandemic has subsided.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils continue to monitor Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.
The 23-year-old, who is also under contract until 2023, has shone for the Foxes since arriving from Norwich City two years ago, but United are unlikely to move to Maddison and Grealish this summer.
Solskjaer also wants to compete with Real Madrid for Borussia Dortmund’s teenage sensation Erling Haaland and has preselected Tottenham Hotspur star Harry Kane, despite the Spurs’ contention that they will not sell the English captain to a Premier League rival .
