Man United keep a close eye on €50m-rated England international

Man United have made Jack Grealish their top target this summer and will go all out for the Aston Villa winger. Meanwhile, Aston Villa are prepared to admit defeat in their bid to keep hold of their talisman. It comes after battling so hard to keep Man United at bay last summer.

Red Devils made serious moves to try and sign Jack, only to be knocked back by Dean Smith. Grealish was keen on joining Man United but a transfer never materialized. England international has gone on to put in several stellar displays at Villa Park as his boyhood side goes through one of their best campaigns in years.

In 22 PL games, he has scored six and assisted 10 but his ability to drag Villa back into games has wowed scouts. And in particular, the Norwegian manager, who is desperate to sign the 25-year-old winger. Red Devils are prepared to make the English forward their top target this summer.

It is understood that a bid of nearly £70m would be enough to prise him away from Birmingham. And Aston Villa are prepared to accept the offer, having stopped him from leaving last summer. With Jack becoming an England international this campaign, a move to United would only bolster his chances of further caps with the Three Lions.

Gareth Southgate would also be intrigued to see how he copes with the added limelight, having had several disciplinary matters at Villa. The report also states that the Red Devils are set to initiate contact with the footballers’ agent soon and agree on personal terms before speaking to Aston Villa.
