Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish remains a key transfer target for Manchester United and has been mentioned as a possible replacement should Paul Pogba leave the club at the end of the season.

Manchester United’s hopes of signing Grealish at the end of the season has suffered a huge blow.

According to 90min via The Sun, Aston Villa are set to offer Jack Grealish a new deal to keep him at the club beyond the summer.

The 25-year-old only penned a new contract last year, but the report claims the Villans are keen to offer his fresh terms.

A contract in the region of £200,000-a-week is said to be on the cards, which will make Grealish one of the highest paid English players in the Premier League.
