Manchester United are reportedly prepared to try and sign Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish but will need to offload Paul Pogba in order to do so.
Grealish, 25, came close to leaving his boyhood club during last summer’s transfer window, however, with United refusing to meet Villa’s transfer demands, whilst focusing on Jadon Sancho, a move ultimately failed.
Despite the failed attempt to land the classy playmaker, United look set to try again in the near future.
According to a recent report from The Athletic, the Red Devils’ hierarchy would use the funds made available from offloading Pogba to offer to Villa for Grealish.
It has been claimed that despite Grealish recently signing a new deal, the club may offer him a ‘gentleman’s agreement’ in order to move to a side in the Champions League.
Elsewhere, Pogba, 27, looks nailed on to be next summer’s biggest mover after a 12-month period has seen the Frenchman flirt with the possibility of joining Real Madrid.
With the 27-year-old’s contract set to expire in 2022, next summer may be the Reds’ last chance to recoup some of the whopping £94.5m they paid for him back in 2016.
