Manchester United are still in contact with Aston Villa over £75m-rated Jack Grealish

Manchester United remain in contact with Aston Villa over a deal for £75million-rated Jack Grealish.

The clubs are understood to have spoken over the past week with the talented midfielder open to the challenge of playing for a club in the Champions League.

United had been focusing their attention on a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho but with that reaching an impasse, Grealish has moved back into focus. 

The 24-year-old created the most chances by an English player in the Premier League last season but was omitted from Gareth Southgate’s England squad again on Tuesday.

Though there have been questions raised regarding his off-field behaviour, United still believe his skill and energy could benefit their squad for the new season.

Villa have wealthy owners and gave no need to sell their captain but will not stand in his way of progressing as long as suitors match their valuation. 

United could offer a number of players as part of negotiations with Villa keen to add a goalkeeper and right back as part of their summer rebuild.

United’s Dean Henderson, who signed a new contract on Wednesday, and Sergio Romero are both admired by Villa as possible loans while United full-back Diogo Dalot could be available too.

Dean Smith wants to bolster his forward line and strengthen midfield too.

Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher and Brentford pair Said Benrahma and Ollie Watkins have also been discussed.
