Manchester United: Fans blast Jack Grealish as Aston Villa set Red Devils a transfer deadline

Manchester United: Fans blast Jack Grealish as Aston Villa set Red Devils a transfer deadline - Manchester United Transfer Rumours

Aston Villa manager Dean Smith has revealed that Jack Grealish’s future at Villa Park will be resolved next month, according to reports.

Manchester United are interested in the playmaker and will look to sign him in the summer despite his current club avoiding relegation from the Premier League. Smith’s side earned a hard-fought draw with West Ham at London Stadium after Grealish looked to have sealed the win with a screamer in the second half (BBC), but a 1-1 draw was still enough to keep them up.

According to Manchester Evening News, as per @utdreport, the Red Devils were considering a £65m deal for the Villa captain in February. While Villa will be able to demand a higher asking price now, they will not want to jeopardise their relationship with Grealish, who has arguably given his all for his boyhood club this season.

The 24-year-old has scored 10 goals and supplied six assists overall, taking two  shots per game, averaging 2.5 key passes, and completing two dribbles on average in the Premier League.

Samuel Luckhurst has suggested that Villa will find it hard to ignore such a tempting offer, especially give the current economic climate.

However, it is worth remembering the Red Devils spent £47m on Bruno Fernandes, and it remains to be seen how much they will be willing to spend on the former England under-21 international, who is still uncapped by the national team at senior level.

Grealish, who is only one year younger than the Portuguese midfielder, arguably hasn’t hit the same levels as of yet. After arriving at Old Trafford in January, Fernandes has scored eight goals and created seven assists in 14 games in the Premier League so far.

Unsurprisingly, many United fans blasted Grealish as an “average player” on social media, with several supporters branding the fee “stupid” and “ridiculous” as he is still largely unproven at the top levels of the game.
