“If Villa stays awake, does Manchester United have the stomach to spend £ 80 million on Grealish?” Matt Law asks for Sunday’s supplement

Manchester United’s interest in Jack Grealish will depend on whether Aston Villa has relegated this season, say the Sunday supplement panel.
A relationship in the Sunday People states that United made Grealish its main focus this summer, replacing Jadon Sancho on its transfer wish list.
Grealish has long been connected with a move to Old Trafford, but with a £ 80 million commission touted for the midfielder, Steve Bates – who wrote the Sunday People article – said al supplement he did not expect United to spend so much in the midst of the coronavirus crisis, and that they would not have needed if Villa was demoted.
“Grealish has been a player on their radar for some time, I’m not sure United would have spent anything like £ 80 million on Jack Grealish, but particularly if Villa ended up falling, in this current market, I don’t think Lo United would rate it as something like £ 80 million for a player who hasn’t played for England or had exposure to the Premier League, “said Bates.
“He is certainly a player they are watching. They were watching James Maddison, but now he seems to be signing a new contract. If (Paul) Pogba is committed to United, there is less need to run in the transfer market for a player like Grealish. , they just bought Bruno Fernandes who is, once again, an offensive midfielder, but I think a lot depends on Jadon Sancho’s situation.
“United is still like him, we have seen that the top star is Saturday in the Bundesliga and is probably ahead of Grealish in his development in a player suitable for United’s DNA.”
That was a point of view shared by Matt Law, soccer correspondent to Daily Telegraph, who stated that Villa would have no obligation to sell his most valuable asset and the captain if they survived.
“The security of Villa’s Premier League will be the key to the Grealish situation,” said Law. “If they get off, I think everyone expects them to sell it, and not the money they want.
“But if they stay on their feet, they have incredibly wealthy owners and if they get off, they should only sell Grealish from an FFP perspective. Their owners are the fourth or fifth richest in the Premier League. There is no financial pressure on them to sell it, and if they remain standing, does Manchester United have the stomach to spend £ 80 million on Grealish? “
