United favourites to agree deal for Grealish

Manchester United are reportedly leading the likes of Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign Jack Grealish from Aston Villa.

The 24-year-old has been in good form for the Villains since their top-flight return and he has contributed nine goals and six assists across all competitions this season.

According to Manchester Evening News, the likes of City and Spurs are keeping a close eye on Grealish's position but United are said to be heading the queue to pursue the Villains skipper.

It is added that the versatile player fits the club's transfer policy of targeting 'humble' characters off the playing field and they are keen to finalise a deal prior to the European Championships this summer.

Grealish is presently valued at around £60m and United are keen on finalising his transfer ahead of Euro 2020 where his stock could rise further with promising displays for England.

Grealish has yet to make his senior debut for the Three Lions but he is widely excepted to earn his maiden call-up under Gareth Southgate for the upcoming international friendlies.
