According to a recent report by The Independent, Manchester United have identified Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish as a realistic transfer target for the summer window. It is understood that the Red Devils are struggling to recruit players this late in this winter transfer period so Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be forced to postpone his recruitment plans until the end of this campaign (via The Independent).
The same source has mentioned that Grealish is a realistic option while the other option being considered is Leicester City midfield ace, James Maddison.
Grealish’s Excellent Form At Villa Park This Season
The Villans skipper has enjoyed a brilliant campaign in the Premier League thus far after putting in a string of match-winning displays at Villa Park under Dean Smith’s stewardship. He has scored nine goals and provided six assists in 25 appearances for the West Midlands outfit this term across all competitions. The Birmingham-born talent has averaged 1.1 tackles, 2.1 shots, 2.6 key passes and 2.3 dribbles per game in the English first division (stats via whoscored).
The versatile Villa midfielder has also represented the Republic of Ireland at various youth levels before deciding to play for England at the international stage. He has made seven appearances for the Three Lions’ Under-21 side but is yet to earn his first senior cap for Gareth Southgate’s national team.
What Does The Aston Villa Captain Offer On The Pitch?
The 24-year-old excels at linking up play with others around him and can play in multiple positions across the frontline. He primarily enjoys the freedom of operating as a box to box midfielder but can also feature from the wide areas if required. His versatility, coupled with his creativity in the opposition half, makes him an unstoppable force in midfield.
Recruiting Grealish Next Summer: Wise Move For The Red Devils?
Therefore, the Red Devils will significantly benefit from acquiring a player of Grealish’s quality next summer. He has all the makings to be a top talent in European football as long as he can continue showing signs of improvement with each season.
Grealish is also a potent goal-threat from long range which only makes him an even better fit for the Old Trafford-outfit. It could prove to be a shrewd move for Man United to orchestrate a deal to bring the English midfielder to the Theatre of Dreams at the end of this season.
