Another report to suggest Jadon Sancho is Manchester United’s priority target this summer…
Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth claims the Red Devils have cooled their interest in Jack Grealish and have turned total focus on Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, via Sky Sports Transfer Centre.
The transfer window has only officially opened and United have 10 weeks to get their business over the line.
Aston Villa co-owner Nassef Sawiris has reportedly placed a hefty £80m price-tag on their captain and now, according to The Mirror, the stubborn businessman wants at least as much as United paid to Leicester last year for defender Harry Maguire.
Grealish scored on Sunday in the 1-1 draw at West Ham which confirmed Villa’s survival and now, according to The Mirror, stubborn businessman Sawiris wants at least as much as United paid to Leicester last year for defender Harry Maguire, totalling £80m.
Since the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes, I feel demand has decreased for a signing like Jack Grealish or Leicester City’s James Maddison, and United are reportedly making the right decision to prioritise Jadon Sancho.
This may come as a blow for Grealish, with former England striker Michael Owen recently claiming the Villa playmaker’s heart was set on joining United this summer. But as a Villa fan it wouldn’t be the end of the world if he spent another season there after helping them avoid relegation.

It now looks like Grealish’s chance to join United has gone.
Sancho is a star in the making who is ready for the ultimate stage. Champions League night at Old Trafford! Bring it home, Ed Woodward.
