Michael Owen has claimed that Man United target and Aston Villa captain, Jack Grealish now has his heart on the Red Devils for a transfer this summer window.

It has been reported that the Red Devils have the Aston Villa man and England international winger Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund as their major target for the summer window.

With Jack Grealish learning of the interest from Man United for his services, he is now very interested and will push for a move to happen. The midfielder had earlier claimed that he wants to gift the club a stay in the Premier League and that has already been achieved.

Michael Owen said he expects the Red Devils to get the player for a normal transfer fee but fears that it could be hyped because Aston Villa survived relegation.

According to the former player, Jack Grealish has been put on the spotlight which means many more clubs would have been paying attention to him and he could see a move elsewhere if the Red Devils fail to make a bid.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports are reporting that the Red Devils are no longer paying attention to jack Grealish for his services and may have a change of mind before the window is opened.

Ross Barkley

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley has joined fellow Premier League side Aston Villa on loan for the remainder of this season.

His loan deal to the former European champions was confirmed by the Blues on Wednesday morning.

Ross Barkley has decided to move away from Chelsea after the array of talents signed by the club left him on the fringes.

The 26-year-old would now be hoping to make his mark on an Aston Villa side that has started the season in sparkling form.

Aston Villa have won two from two league games and are currently in the top four despite playing a game lesser than 16 other teams.

Ross Barkley could make his debut for Aston Villa in the upcoming league game at home to champions Liverpool.

The Carabao Cup fourth round clash at home to Stoke City on Thursday night might come too soon for him.

He scored 11 goals in 86 appearances for Chelsea with the last of his goals coming last week during the Carabao Cup fourth round win over second tier team Barnsley.

Ross Barkley joined Chelsea from Everton in January 2018 in a £15m deal and has struggled to consistently hold a permanent spot in the first team.

He played under three managers namely Antonio Conte, Maurizio Sarri and Frank Lampard.

The speculations linking Jack Grealish to Man United have can now be put to rest following reports that he has signed a new 5-year deal with Aston Villa.

After hoping Aston Villa to avoid relegation last term, Jack Grealish was linked with a move to the Old Trafford with speculations that efforts are being made to snap him up but that did not work out.

Now, it is confirmed that he will be with Aston Villa for more years after penning a long-term deal with the club until 2025 as he is highly valued by the club owners.

Aston Villa owners have shown ambition to bounce back this new season with the decision to keep Jack Grealish as well as bring in other players in this summer transfer window so as to avoid the mistakes of last season.

Jack Grealish has been one of the best on Aston Villa’s book, scoring 10 goals in 41 appearances as a midfielder last season, particularly the goal he scored in the last game of the season.

However, Jack Grealish was never a priority for the Red Devils and now that they have secured the signature of Donny van de Beek, there will be no need for a new addition at the midfield.
