Rumours in regards to a Jack Grealish transfer to Manchester United are beginning to pick up the pace. The Red Devils are seemingly interested in the Aston Villa star, while if the Birmingham-based outfit are relegated, you’d think there’s a pretty good chance Grealish will move on.
In fact, last month we covered a story from The Express, in which it was claimed that Grealish has already bought a house in the North West. Make of that what you will.
With Bruno Fernandes boosting morale and United looking in supreme form, there’s no guarantee Grealish would start week-in-week-out if a deal did happen. However, he’d still be a stunning addition to the squad.
Well, despite COVID-19 giving pretty much every club in world football financial troubles of some sort, United are still in a better position than most.
According to the usually excellent James Cooper, who works for Sky Sports, United can ‘easily’ complete the signing of the superstar 24-year-old this summer due to the ‘finances they have’.
“Certainly in terms of money, Jack Grealish is a deal Manchester United can do pretty easily with the finances they have,” Cooper told Sky Sports and their viewers. “With Sancho, they’re going to have to get a bit more creative.
Again, if Villa go down, a transfer this summer feels an inevitability. I would expect United to show interest, though they won’t be the only club keen on making a deal happen.
Grealish has that swagger. That arrogance. That confidence which is required to make it at a club like United. Yes, he wouldn’t start every week, though look at that City squad, it’s jam-packed with quality and there’s usually one or two world-class attackers sat on the subs bench. United should be aiming for something similar.
The story also touches on Jadon Sancho, which seems a far more complicated transfer. Before COVID-19, a £100m transfer fee seemed pretty reasonable for the Englishman. Now? Not so much. Cooper reckons if this deal is to happen, they’ll be several clauses and perhaps a player or two going the other way…
