It’s Jack Grealish in, Paul Pogba out for Manchester United as Alexis Sanchez prepares to return to Old Trafford. Manchester City refuses to sell Leroy Sane to Bayern Munich and the Premier League’s ‘Project Restart’ could be a non-starter. It’s Friday’s Paper Round…
Goodbye Pogba, hello Grealish
Manchester United step up Grealish chase as Pogba nears exit.
Manchester United are ready to step up their chase for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish, according to the Sun. The Red Devils have been tracking the 24-year-old for the past 18 months and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to partner him alongside Bruno Fernandes in his midfield which would allow record-signing Paul Pogba to leave this summer.
The Sun state that United will allow their World Cup winner to leave “if the right offer was to come in”. Grealish’s asking price is dependant on Aston Villa’s Premier League status at the end of the season – with the Midlands side set to demand £70 million if they manage to stay up or £50 million if they are relegated.
