Manchester United to move for Aston Villa midfielder

Jack Grealish news

Grealish to Man United in January?

Manchester United are reportedly considering a January move to sign Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish.

The Red Devils are presently eighth in the league standings with 25 points and that is their worst-ever total after 18 games in the Premier League era.

The club have particularly struggled to break down teams in the lower half of the table and ESPN claims that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants another creative playmaker in the ranks.

It is added that Grealish is a target for the Mancunian giants, given he has the versatility of comfortably playing on the left side of the attack or at the heart of the midfield.

The 24-year-old has nearly four years remaining on his existing deal with the Villains but reports have recently claimed that the west Midlands outfit could be tempted to sell due to their financial concerns.

Grealish started the campaign in a relatively slow fashion but he has picked up form over the past months. He has netted five goals in the previous eight Premier League games for the side.
