Grealish has set his heart on Man United move

Michael Owen believes that the Aston Villa captain is keen on a move to Old Trafford.

"People compare him to James Maddison and others like that but I think he’s head and shoulders above him," added Owen.

Michael Owen told Premier League Productions: "I’m told he [Jack Grealish] has his heart set on Manchester United. I’d be surprised if he went anywhere else.

"He’ll be more expensive now to possible suitors. There is that tie now that it’s his team and they’re still in the Premier League – it would have been an easier decision if they went down.

"You can’t have someone like that playing in the Championship. He’s a top player, he would suit an awful lot of teams; he’s exceptional.

"People compare him to James Maddison and others like that but I think he’s head and shoulders above him. He can run with the ball well, score goals, he’s in double figures this season, he assists.

"He’s actually much better out of possession and I think that’s where this season he has developed that side. He covers a lot of ground.

"He’s not one of those flashy players where you give him the ball and he turns it on, he actually works hard out of possession as well."

The Aston Villa captain has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for a long time but since the club have managed to stay up in the Premier League, they are unlikely to budge from their £80m valuation.

Grealish's old tweets have also proven that he's a United fan at heart but the price tag seems rather steep for now.
