Manchester United were looking to lure Jack Grealish in the summer transfer window but the star proved to be too expensive.
If reports in the media are anything to go by then the Red Devils are still interested in the 25-year-old and are weighing up a move to finally sign him next summer.
Transfer: Man Utd have to agree signing of £40million winger in January – Opinion
According to The Daily Mail, Grealish was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford and even told his mates that he is joining the club. However, the 20-time English champions refused to splash more than £65million and the playmaker ended up staying with Aston Villa.
The versatile attacker was vital in helping his boyhood club staying up and he was rewarded with a bumper new contract worth £140,000-a-week (The Athletic).
The skipper has repaid the faith of Dean Smith by putting in fantastic performances this term. So far, in 15 league starts, he has scored 5 goals and provided no fewer than 9 assists.
Last season, he scored a world class goal at Old Trafford and last night, he was once again Villa’s best player against Man Utd in their own backyard.
The Mail claim that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge admirer of the 3-capped star and is keen on signing him in the summer. The dilemma is that Grealish is still not going to come for cheap as Villa are demanding a mammoth fee of £100million for their prized asset.
Few days back, former Red Devil, Saha, praised the playmaker by stating that he is an “amazing” player and tipped Ole to get his signing done (The Standard). In your view, should Man Utd spend £100million to finally sign him next summer?
