Manchester United are once again going to make Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish their top summer transfer priority, according to reports.
The news is that the Leicester City playmaker James Maddison, who was Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first choice midfielder, is on the verge of agreeing to a long term contract at Leicester City, which would mean Grealish would be the natural choice for the Red Devils to replace the midfielder who might be leaving in summer (zero points for guessing the midfielder who is on the verge of leaving for it’s Pog someone).
Brendan Rodgers’ side are almost guaranteed, unlike United, to qualify for next season’s Champions League and will not entertain the idea of inserting a release clause in any new deal after Chelsea were able to sign N’Golo Kante, relatively cheaply, for £35million back in 2016.
United, according to the Mirror, will instead focus their attentions on Grealish, who could be open to a summer move once Aston Villa’s plight is settled.
The 24-year-old attracted significant interest from several Premier League big-hitters last month, but with his hometown club in danger of relegation, he refused to consider a move mid-season.
