Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish is on the radar of Premier League giants Manchester United, according to a report.

The Sun claims that the 22-year-old is being eyed by the Red Devils are his impressive displays this season in the Championship, which ended with his side losing to Fulham in the play-off final.

It is understood that United are big admirers of the English playmaker and that manager Jose Mourinho is keen to wrap up summer deals quickly, with the club poised to land midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk.

Football Insider verdict:

Grealish has been a key component for Villa this campaign with his brilliant performances, scoring three goals and supplying six assists in just 31 appearances. The creative maestro helps pull the strings for Steve Bruce’s side and he was in brilliant touch during the 1-0 loss to Fulham at Wembley. He is certainly good enough to make the jump back up to the Premier League and is destined for a huge future in the game. However, his short-term future should be to remain with Villa and they need to try keep him at all costs over the summer window. The Midlands giants are likely to be in the mix once again for promotion next year and Grealish can help get them over the line. The attacking midfielder would be starved of first-team minutes if he made the switch to Old Trafford and the potential financial benefits would be the only tempting thing about selling Grealish this summer.

In other Aston Villa transfer news, the club are certain to consider making an approach for this Premier League forward with 19 goals this season.
