Manchester United are reportedly keen on luring midfielder Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer with a tempting salary package of £150,000 a week.

The 24-year-old has been heavily tipped to leave the Villains at the end of the season regardless of whether they remain in the Premier League or not.

Of late, United have been deemed as the front-runners to land his signature and The Sun claims that the club are in talks with the west Midlands outfit over a move for Grealish.

The same publication states that United are keen on sealing the player's services before the season concludes and are prepared to offer him more than four times of his current £35,000-a-week wages.

Grealish has contributed seven goals and six assists for the Villains since their return to the Premier League. He has also chipped in with a couple of Carabao Cup goals for Dean Smith's side, who eventually lost in the final.

Aston Villa are likely to demand a fee of around £70m and it remains to be seen whether United can sort out a quick deal, given they could face competition from the likes of Chelsea.
