Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish has reportedly told his teammates and friends that he wants to join Manchester United in the summer.
The 24-year old is a United summer target as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to rebuild ahead of the 2020/21 season where the Red Devils will be keen on securing Champions League football with this season’s struggles pointing at the team missing out once again.
United wanted to sign the England international in January but with his boyhood club in a relegation dogfight, the midfielder declined to leave and instead chose to focus on helping the Villains remain in the league for at least another season.
Solskjaer continues to pursue the midfielder and the latest reports from his camp indicate that he has made up his mind and wants to leave the club in the summer for Manchester United.
The player is a sworn United fan and late last year he admitted that Old Trafford is his dream stadium further fueling speculation that he could join the Old Trafford revolution in the summer.
The record English champions have already brought on board Bruno Fernandes from Sporting but with the future of Paul Pogba in doubt, the club is preparing for life without him and have earmarked Grealish and Leicester City’s James Maddison for signing.
Grealish has scored seven league goals for the Villains this season and set up five others for his teammates. United midfielders have struggled to score goals and Grealish addition will be a welcome boost for the club
