Man United are ready to reignite their interest in Jack Grealish this summer.
Ah yes, we’ve been here before. Manchester United are pretty well-known admirers of Jack Grealish, with the Englishman being bang in form this term only heightening Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s keenness.
The story actually comes from Spain, via Todofichajes, translated by the Star on Sunday. Apparently, United are to ‘go all out’ in an effort to sign the Aston Villa star, who has 16(!) Premier League goal contributions this term (10 goals, six assists).
What’s interesting is that it’s claimed Villa are ready to cave in and sell their star. It’s thought that a bid of around £70million should be enough to get the deal done, with Dean Smith ready to let Grealish go after he was denied a move away last summer.
Grealish has been brilliant to watch this season – for both club and country. Make no mistake about it, he’d be an asset to any team in world football.
Should United make their move?
Absolutely. This young man is special. Goals, assists, winning free-kicks, on-ball quality and an all-round player. He’s amongst the best in the country, why wouldn’t we want that at Old Trafford?
I guess the problem comes as to where you’d fit him in. Grealish’s versatility helps out in that regard as he can play pretty much anywhere across the front three in-behind the striker. Plus, if Paul Pogba does leave, we’d need that extra fire-power.
Put this guy in a team with Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford and you’re talking about something pretty special. I’d love to see this deal happen, though I still have my doubts about whether the Reds would splash the cash given we’re still in the middle of a pandemic.
