Man Utd news: Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish transfer stance concerns Old Trafford bosses | Football | Sport


Manchester United are concerned by Aston Villa‘s tough stance over Jack Grealish. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to recruit the attacking midfielder but Old Trafford officials are prepared to play the waiting game as they are prioritising a deal for Jadon Sancho.

With Grealish valued in excess of £80m, the pressure will be on United to balance the books before firming up their interest.

Solskjaer fielded a question about Sancho at a press conference on Wednesday ahead of their Europa League tie against LASK Linz, and appeared to suggest that club chiefs are willing to take their time to secure deals.

“This transfer window is a long one,” the Norwegian said. “Every transfer takes its course.

“It is what it is, so if there is any news we will update you.”

Grealish was Villa’s star performer as they retained their Premier League status on the final day of the campaign after an end-of-season burst of form.

He chipped in with 10 goals and eight assists in 41 appearances across all competitions as Villa also reached the Carabao Cup final.

Former United star Phil Neville believes Grealish is not required, however, because of the presence of Bruno Fernandes.

“People are talking about [Jack] Grealish, but now with [Bruno] Fernandes in there, do we need another number 10?” Neville told The Webby & O’Neill Podcast.

“I think the right-hand side is the biggest area where we need to improve. An out-and-out winger.”
