Jack Grealish has reportedly told friends that he is keen on a transfer to Manchester United this summer.
The Aston Villa captain has been exceptional this season, and is deserving of a call-up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the European Championships.
Grealish has led his boyhood club’s Premier League survival charge this season, scoring five goals and contributing seven assists.
His form has attracted interest from a host of top clubs, including United and it seems inevitable he will leave for a club who can match his ambitions at the end of the season.
And according to a report by Samuel Luckhurst in Manchester Evening News, Grealish would ‘relish’ a move to Old Trafford.
It is suggested his friends have been made aware of his desire to move to Manchester, regardless of whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is in charge next season.
Manchester United is still a huge lure for top players and Grealish would be an excellent addition for Solskjaer.
The Reds are still lacking in creative options that possess real quality and the 24-year-old combines his flair on the ball with an aggression in defence.
Grealish has the ability to operate well in a free roaming role, or from an inside left where he can cause problems for defenders cutting inside.
He is valued at £31m by Transfemarkt, but we expect United will have to pay around £45m to secure Grealish’s services this summer.
