Top Premier League player keen on joining Manchester United

According to former Manchester United player Michael Owen, Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is keen on a move to Old Trafford.

Owen told Premier League Productions: “I’m told he [Jack Grealish] has his heart set on Manchester United. I’d be surprised if he went anywhere else.

“He’ll be more expensive now to possible suitors. There is that tie now that it’s his team and they’re still in the Premier League – it would have been an easier decision if they went down.

“You can’t have someone like that playing in the Championship. He’s a top player, he would suit an awful lot of teams; he’s exceptional.

“People compare him to James Maddison and others like that but I think he’s head and shoulders above him. He can run with the ball well, score goals, he’s in double figures this season, he assists.

“He’s actually much better out of possession and I think that’s where this season he has developed that side. He covers a lot of ground.

“He’s not one of those flashy players where you give him the ball and he turns it on, he actually works hard out of possession as well.”
