Former Villa boss Sherwood claims Jack Grealish to Man United is a done deal

Former Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood has claimed that midfielder Jack Grealish will be joining Manchester United in the summer.

Grealish has constantly been linked with United with the club also said to be after the services of Jadon Sancho.

Speaking to The Premier League production via The Sun, Sherwood said that there was only one club Grealish would move to and that it was United.

"I think Jack Grealish is a deal which is already done. He’s a player that they (Manchester United) need. I honestly believe there’s only one club for Jack Grealish. I don’t think he can stay at Aston Villa, he needs to progress his career. I think he signs for Manchester United,” he said.

Villa is said to have slapped a £75million price tag on their captain but that amount might be reduced if Villa goes down to the Championship according to reports from the UK.

Grealish is set to earn a huge wage hike on his move to United with chief executive Ed Woodward willing to fork out £150,000-a-week for a player they think won’t struggle with the demands of the Premier League.

The player has remained coy about his possible destination insisting that his concentration was with Villa but sources close to the player feels he would consider his options if the club is relegated.
