Grealish wanted by Chelsea?

Chelsea have reportedly joined Manchester United in the race to sign midfielder Jack Grealish from Aston Villa this summer.

The west London side have plenty of wide attacking options in their ranks but the likes of Pedro and Willian have been tipped to leave on free transfers when the current season concludes.

According to Calciomercato, the Blues could go on a bidding battle with United to sign Grealish, who has contributed seven goals and six assists in Villa's comeback season to the Premier League.

Grealish has generally operated on the left side of the attack for the Villains but he has regularly stated that he would prefer to feature in a central midfield position.

The west Midlands side are likely to demand at least £50m for their academy graduate, who has made more than 200 appearances for the club across all competitions.

Apart from United and Chelsea, Liverpool have previously been credited with an interest in the 24-year-old. Grealish has more than three years remaining on his current Villains contract.
