The Englishman has been the talisman for his side this campaign after saving their Premier League status on the last day of the 2019/20 season.

Jack has five goals and six assists to his name in nine top-flight appearances this term and has been a key reason behind the Villa’s solid start this year.

Grealish was expected to leave the club last summer, but he signed a new five-year deal with the club in September to pledge his long-term future to the project at Villa Park.

But he has been constantly mentioned with a move and Manchester United are understood to be one of his long term suitors.

The Premier League heavyweights wanted to sign Jadon Sancho in spite of looking at Grealish as another possible option.

But it has been stated that the player still has many takers at the Old Trafford outfit and the club remain interested.

Any potential transfer is likely to wait until the summer and his new deal means Aston Villa are likely to ask for a big sum for an England international.

The technically gifted midfielder’s future also depends on how Aston Villa manage to do in the league over the course of the season.

Meantime, Zinedine Zidane allegedly still dreams of bringing Manchester United star Paul Pogba to Real Madrid.

Paul’s future is again making headlines after entourage Mino Raiola this week declared that the star’s time at Old Trafford “is over”.

Madrid have regularly been mentioned with the 27-year-old in the past, with Zinedine making no secret of his admiration for his fellow countryman.

Spanish outlet Marca claims that the Madrid chief has not given up managing Pogba, but he must first persuade Los Blancos bosses that the transfer is worth the risk.
