Manchester United’s interest in Jack Grealish will depend on Aston Villa’s relegation this season, according to the Sunday supplement sign.

A report in the Sunday People says United have made Grealish their main goal this summer, replacing Jadon Sancho on their transfer wish list.

Grealish has long been linked to a move to Old Trafford, but with a £ 80 million charge announced for the midfielder, Steve Bates – who wrote the Sunday People article – says to Extra cost he didn’t expect United to spend that much in the midst of the coronavirus crisis and he wouldn’t need it if Villa were to be relegated.

“Grealish has been a player on their radar for a while, I’m not sure United would spend something like £ 80 million for Jack Grealish, but especially if Villa ends up going down in this market today, I don’t think not United would value it at something like £ 80 million for a player who hasn’t played for England or has been exposed to the Premier League, “said Bates.

“He is definitely a player they are watching. They were watching James Maddison, but now it looks like he’s signing a new contract. If (Paul) Pogba commits to United, there is no need to rush into the transfer market for a player like Grealish, they have just bought Bruno Fernandes who is, once again, a midfielder offensive, but I think it comes down a lot to Jadon Sancho’s situation.

“United still like him, we saw what a star he is in the Bundesliga on Saturday and he is probably ahead of Grealish in his development into a player who matches United’s DNA. “

It was a point of view shared by Matt Law, football correspondent at The telegraph of the day, who said that Villa would not be obliged to sell his most precious possession and his captain if he survived.

“Villa’s safety in the Premier League will be key to Grealish’s situation,” said Law. “If they fall, I think everyone expects them to sell it, not the money they want. ”

“But if they stay standing, they have incredibly wealthy owners and if they fall, they’ll only have to sell Grealish from an FFP perspective. Their owners are the fourth or fifth wealthiest in the Premier League. There is no financial pressure on them to sell it, and if they remain standing, does Manchester United have the stomach to spend £ 80 million on Grealish? ”
