Man United passed on the chance to sign 25-year-old English star on a hot streak

Manchester United target Jack Grealish is now hot property

It would appear that Manchester United missed yet another trick in the transfer window by not pursuing Jack Grealish.

The Aston Villa skipper continues to impress in what could be a season that brings his talents to the fore. He has played a key role for club and country fo far this season.

United were heavily linked with a move for the 25-year-old last summer. However, a deal failed to materialize and he signed a new five-year deal with Villa.

According to Stretty News(h/t The Daily Star), Manchester United were offered the player last summer. However, we had our eyes set on Jadon Sancho and decided to pass on Grealish.

In the end, it was another lose-lose for us once the window shut. Neither did we land Sancho nor has Grealish vindicated our decision to pass him on.

Grealish’s hot start to the season has alerted a number of top clubs of his potential. Even if we were to go back in for him, it will not be easy.

According to the report, United has now fallen down the pecking order of suitors keeping tabs on Grealish.

Among his suitors are Arsenal and Manchester City. While Arsenal are still failing to regain a foothold to the top, City could offer Grealish a better chance to shine than United.

The 25-year-old playmaker is said to be aware of the interest in him. Given the way he continues to perform on the pitch, he will not need another audition.

Sir Alex Ferguson confessed that missing out on Paul Gascoigne in 1988 was the biggest regret of his career.

It is quite ironic that Grealish has now been compared to the English great. It remains to be seen if passing on the 25-year-old will be another decision we come to regret.
