As per a report from the Manchester Evening News, Jack Grealish remains a central figure in Manchester United’s transfer plans this summer.
Premier League giants United have been persistently linked with attack-minded midfield reinforcements over the course of the campaign.
The first-half of the season saw Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men often struggle to link midfield to attack, as the sidelined Paul Pogba’s absence was sorely felt.
Ed Woodward and co., though, to their credit, moved to rectify this issue during the winter transfer window.
On the back of months of speculation, it was finally confirmed late in January that highly sought after Portuguese international Bruno Fernandes had made the move to Old Trafford.
The 25-year-old’s impact, meanwhile, has since been immediate.
Fernandes has directly contributed to 7 goals in his 9 outings thus far, with it already evident the type of long-overdue spark set to be introduced to United’s midfield by his arrival.
Despite the vast improvement seen in the Red Devils’ ranks in the middle of the park on the back of Fernandes’ addition, though, reports have continued to circulate, insisting that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer remains keen on adding another attacking midfielder to his squad this summer.
Chief among the rumoured list of targets of the Manchester giants, to this point, have been James Maddison and Jack Grealish.
Bayer Leverkusen sensation Kai Havertz, meanwhile, has also been named as a potential arrival at Old Trafford ahead of next season.
As outlined above, though, one of this trio remains firmly ahead in United’s pecking order of targets.
The individual in question? Jack Grealish.
As per a report from the Manchester Evening News, the Red Devils first made their interest in the signature of Aston Villa captain Grealish known back in February.
The 24-year-old’s price-tag could also be set to drop in the near future, if the end of the campaign sees Villa relegated to the Championship.
For this reason, among others, Grealish’s addition is said to have been ‘prioritised’ by those in a position of power at United.
