Manchester United have suffered a major setback in pursuit of Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish, recent reports claim – Arch-rivals Manchester City are said to be so impressed with the creative midfielder they are now considered the first to drop out the £ 100million valued. Star.
Grealish, 25, has remained one of the Premier League’s most notable artists.
Since promoting his side at the Big Time at the end of the 2018-19 season, Grealish has continued to impress on England’s biggest stage.
After a seamless transition to the notoriously difficult Premier League, Grealish has already racked up 32 direct contributions since his side’s promotion.
Grealish’s inspired form has seen him draw links to people like United as recently as last summer’s transfer window.
However, after struggling to agree on a move last year, which would have been worth £ 100million, Grealish ended up signing an exceptional new deal with the Villans.
The latest in the ongoing saga comes from the Daily Mail, which claim that despite the midfielder’s recent signing of a new deal, Villa’s hierarchy will allow the striker to leave, if his assessment is met.
It has been reported that in light of United’s failed pursuit, rivals City have rushed to the front of the line for Grealish’s signing.
The midfielder himself was quick to publicly congratulate the Citizens after a recent interview saw the 25-year-old declare Kevin De Bryune as his favorite player.
The Daily Mail goes on to say that in addition to Grealish, City’s hierarchy also identified Nuno Mendes of Sporting Lisbon and Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund as possible summer transfers.
