Man Utd handed massive blow in their pursuit of Premier League No.10 playmaker

Jack Grealish’s agent has claimed that the midfielder is focused on helping Aston Villa to remain in the English top-tier and dismissed talks with Manchester United.

The 24-year-old is believed to be the Red Devils top midfield target ahead of the upcoming summer transfer window after having a stunning season personally at relegation-battle Aston Villa.

Grealish has managed to found back of the net seven times and provide six assists in 28 top-flight games, while also playing a big part in the Villans’ run in the EFL cup final.

Amid repeated links with a move to Man Utd, however, the Englishman’s agent Jonathan Barnett has claimed that discussions over his future will wait till the season will end.

“Jack is captain of Aston Villa – his first priority at the moment is to make sure that they survive in the Premiership,” Barnett told The Ornstein & Chapman Podcast.

“Until that is sorted out, we don’t have the discussion. He’s got his priorities right, he has a job and that’s what he’s going to do, he’s going to fight hard for Aston Villa.”

Aston Villa are one point from safety after drawing one and losing one of their two games since making a return to Premier League last week.
