Manchester United coach have made contact with Aston Villa for the signing of Jack Grealish this summer. The 24 year old is reportedly valued at £75 million and is keen on a big money move in the coming weeks to play Champions League football in the forth coming season.
The Red Devils are yet to make a summer signing and have been locked in talks for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho. However, the Bundesliga outfit have refused to budge on their £108 million valuation, due to which negotiations between the two clubs have stalled.
Manchester United’s interest in Grealish is well documented, with the English man believed to have keen admirers at Old Trafford. Aston Villa are eager to hold on to their captain and talisman this summer and are not under pressure to sell him immediately. The Midlands outfit, however, could be tempted to part with the 24 year old if their asking price is met. Additionally, Manchester United could also offer the likes of Sergio Romero and Diogo Dalot as make weights, as they look to bring down the transfer fee by proposing a player plus cash deal.
However, The Red Devils are officially yet to make an offer for the 24 year old, and it remains to be seen if they do so in the coming weeks. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are running out of time to add to their squad, with the Premier League season set to commence in two weeks.
Manchester United are interested in signing Real Madrid left back Sergio Reguilon, according to the Daily Star. The 23 year old, on loan from Real Madrid, performed admirably for Sevilla as they lifted yet another Europa League title
The Spaniard gave an excellent account of himself, as he helped his side win against the Red Devils in the semi final of the competition, showing his attacking and defensive capabilities. Although Sevilla manager Julen Lopetegui wants to bring back the defender to Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán, the Spanish giants might be priced out of a deal by Premier League sides.
Real Madrid are well stacked in the left back position with Marcelo and Ferland Mendy, which might convince Zinedine Zidane to part ways with the left back. Real Madrid are prepared to let Reguilon leave for bid in the region of £18 million, a generous amount for the left back who has now been called up for the Spain national side. Manchester United have options in the left back spot with Luke Shaw and the emergence of Brandon Williams. However, Shaw has had yet another injury ravaged season and Williams is still learning his trade.
Diogo Dalot has fallen down the pecking order under Solskjaer, with Aaron Bissaka playing the majority of games at right back. Manchester United have the hugely promising Ethan Laird also knocking on the proverbial door of the first team at Old Trafford. However, a deal now seems possible, with the Villans interested in two Manchester United players Dalot and Romero. Villa are in the market for a goalkeeper to replace Pepe Reina and the Argentina number one could be the perfect option for the Midlands club.
Hence, Manchester United are said to be prepared to offer Diogo Dalot and Sergio Romero in a swap deal for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, according to the Express. Grealish is valued at €75 million by Villa, a fee which had made Manchester United back off from the 24 year old.
Joel Periera has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United, with top class goalkeepers such as David de Gea, Dean Henderson, and Sergio Romero on their books. The Portuguese goalkeeper seems to have sealed a year’s loan to Huddersfield Town, with his Manchester United contract expiring in 2021.
