Aston Villa have slapped an £80m price tag on their talisman Jack Grealish as Man Utd edge closer to seal a deal for the Englishman.
Man Utd have been told what they need to pay for Aston Villa starman Jack Grealish, prompting them to look elsewhere for cheaper options.
Grealish has been United’s radar after a remarkable season with Aston Villa.
However, Manchester United could be forced to pursue a much cheaper alternative.
The Englishman has been on fire for Villa all season, scoring important goals, and hence earning the captain arm band due to him being a highly influential part of the squad.
It is no news now that the Villa Park’s midfield entertainer will cost a fortune to the Red Devils, who have been chasing him all season.
Reports from the Hierarchy of Aston Villa claims that Grealish is not going away for anything less than his valuation, which currently stands at £80m.
The report from the Daily Mail says Villa also hope to keep the attacking midfielder if they manage to avoid relegation from the premier league.
Grealish, who is 24 this year, has notched seven goals and laid on six assists in 26 Premier League games this season.
Manchester United could be forced to look elsewhere for a replacement. With Sancho another star on their transfer hotlist.
