Jack Grealish gives ‘go-ahead’ for summer Man United move

Jack Grealish gives ‘go-ahead’ for summer Man United move

The story also says that Manchester United are now front of the queue to land Grealish this summer due to the uncertainty about Paul Pogba's future at the club.

United signed Bruno Fernandes for an initial £46.5 million ($60m) from Sporting Lisbon in January, but he is not the only player designated to improve the team's attacking options.

Not only that, Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are also said to have been alerted by his form and will enter the bidding for the player's signature.

The midfielder will reportedly consider a move away from Villa Park at the end of the campaign, with his club expecting offers from some bigger clubs in England.

Goal add that formal transfer negotiations have not taken place just yet, but behind-the-scenes talks have given both United and Grealish confidence that a deal could be struck in the summer. However, with the threat of a possible departure of Paul Pogba looming, Solskjaer needs to keep his options, seeing as he already appears to be a little lightweight in terms of midfield options.

Grealish's seven goals and five assists in the Premier League this season for relegation battling Villa have ramped-up interest from Europe's elite, with Manchester United making the Englishman their number one target for the summer.

However, the Red Devils will face strong competition for his services if Villa do back down and decide to cash in.

He is understood to have begun house-hunting in anticipation of a transfer to the record English champions and a long-term contract at United would be worth far north of the reported £100,000-per-week deal he now has at Villa Park.

And out of all of them, the offer which entices him most is that of Man United.
