Jack Grealish has been in the news for a few reasons recently. Grealish has been identified as a Manchester United transfer target, but recently the transfer has not looked too secure.
There was social media speculation that Grealish had blown his chance after his incident a few weeks back.
Grealish was seen deliberately breaking coronavirus isolation guidelines on March 28, 2020. Images of the Aston Villa captain being involved in a car crash, emerged a day after the Villa player urged his social media following to stay at home to save the NHS.
The incident sparked outrage and a move to the Red Devils seemed off the table for the midfielder. Mainstream British media outlets suggested that Grealish’s off-field antics would force United to shift their focus to other targets.
Grealish is just as important if not more important than Sancho in the window, he is desperately needed, one injury to Bruno and we’ve got Andreas and Lingard at #10 again.
Grealish’ versatility is unreal and would be such an asset either off the bench or in the starting XI.

United are reportedly interested in Leicester’s playmaker, James Maddison as a preferred target. The dust has settled and although the Aston Villa captain may have botched his United transfer, the money will have the final say.
Maddison’s services are reportedly more expensive to acquire, the Foxes are looking to get £80 million from any potential suitors. This fee could force the Red Devils to compromise and take Grealish for a modest fee of £60 million.
The premier league transfer window officially opens on June 10, 2020, and will close on September 1, 2020. The FIFA international window opens on July 1, 2020.
