Transfer: Club prepared to agree £258,000-a-week deal to sign Man Utd star – Report

If reports in the media are anything to go by then Man United could move to finally sign the playmaker next summer.

According to Manchester Evening News, the versatile midfielder was on the radar of the Red Devils in the summer but he was not considered a confirmed starter, moreover, the valuation of £80million was a concern as well.

However, MEN claim that next year, things could change and Man Utd could move to finally sign Grealish. He has been brilliant lately and would be viewed as an essential first team player.

Last season, he was the top scorer for Aston Villa and also provided the highest number of assists. Not to forget, he scored a sublime curling effort at Old Trafford that left David De Gea stranded. This term, once again, he is by far the best player under the management of Dean Smith.

In all competitions this season, so far, he has made 8 appearances for the Birmingham based club and directly contributed in 10 goals (5 goals and 5 assists).

The 2-capped international is mainly a central attacking midfielder but recently, he has excelled while playing on the left flank. At Old Trafford, Fernandes is the first choice CAM and Rashford is the main LW and both are irreplaceable.

As per MEN, if Grealish continues to perform well, his valuation might cross the £100million mark in summer. In your view, should Man United splash the cash to finally sign him next year?
