Man Utd prioritise Grealish deal ahead of Sancho

Manchester United are focusing on closing a deal for Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish.

The Mirror says Grealish is now Manchester United's No.1 summer transfer target.

Aston Villa's skipper is top of the wanted list for boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he seeks to push the Red Devils back in the big-time.

The 24-year-old playmaker has been at the centre of detailed due diligence that's being undertaken by senior figures at Old Trafford over an £80m move.

Despite Grealish breaking lockdown to attend a house-party with former team-mate Ross McCormack – a move that ended with him picking up a £150,000 club fine – that has not put off Solskjaer.

But with cash at a premium this summer, United will prioritise Grealish over Jadon Sancho with Borussia Dortmund unwilling to lower their £100m asking price.
