Agent of Jack Grealish responds to Manchester United rumours

According to the Metro, the agent of Jack Grealish, Jonathan Barnett has dismissed rumours that his client has agreed on a deal with Manchester United.

The 24-year-old continues to be a shining beacon of hope in an otherwise difficult season for Aston Villa. His performances have attracted the attention of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who has identified him as a key transfer target.

Villa have slapped a mammoth £80million price tag on their skipper, irrespective of their Premier League status. They are currently four points from safety, having played a game less.

Despite Ed Woodward’s assertions that United will not pay through the nose for a player, the club are expected to go through with their interest in Grealish.

Former Villa boss Tim Sherwood had suggested last week that a deal for the midfielder had already been agreed on. Barnett has now moved to quash those rumours.

“Absolutely no deal has been done with anybody.”

He went on to add that the player has not yet given up on the hope that Villa can survive. He is fully committed to their cause and is hopeful of keeping them afloat. Admirable commitment from the skipper indeed.

“He’s not interested in anything else other than fighting to get Aston Villa out of any trouble.”

He did add the caveat that his client will benefit from playing in the Champions League. We would like to think qualifying for the competition will ease our path to signing the midfielder.

With a lot still to play for, transfer talks can wait for now.
