Man United have prioritised signing of £60million playmaker – Report

Jack Grealish goal vs Man Utd

Man Utd have been interested in signing Jack Grealish for quite some time and once again the English playmaker is in the lime light.

According to Manchester Evening News, Man United have prioritised the signing of the 24-year-old attacker, who is expected to leave Aston Villa even if they avoid regelation this term.

Transfer: Man United could finally seal signing for just £65million – Report

MEN have claimed that the Red Devils also have James Maddison on their radar but the Leicester City star is expected to cost more than Grealish and he could even sign a new contract with the Foxes.

Last month, Evening Standard covered a story and reported that the Aston Villa skipper could be lured for a fee of £60million. On the other hand, 23-year-old Maddison might cost around £80million.

Naturally, Grealish is a central attacking midfielder but this season, he has mainly played on the left wing for Villa under the guidance of Dean Smith.

With 9 goals and 8 assists in all competitions, the Birmingham born playmaker is the top goal scorer and creator for his club, who were in the relegation zone at the time the season was suspended.

The question is, where would he fit in? For the CAM position, Solskjaer has already lured a top class player in the form of Bruno Fernandes.

The Portuguese international moved to Old Trafford in the final hours of the January transfer window and after fantastic displays in February, he deservedly won the Premier League Player of the Month award.

On the other hand, as far as the left wing is concerned, the first choice starter is Marcus Rashford, who is the top scorer this season even though he has not played since mid January.

The good thing is that Grealish can also play effectively in the central midfield, an area that has not been strengthened at Old Trafford for almost two years. So, it will not be shocking to see him pull the strings in the center of the park if he does end up moving to Man United.
