Paul Merson is predicting that Manchester United target Jack Grealish will leave Aston Villa this summer.
The transfer window has not been very active so far, but there are alot of rumours in the media, and alot of them are about the future of midfielder Grealish
Grealish has developed into one of the most creative players in the Premier League after developing very nicely over the past few seasons, and there has been many rumours that he is ready to leave Villa.
Manchester City are clear favourites to get a deal done but Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United are also very interested in signing Grealish should he actually leave the Villians over the next few months.
Now, amid the speculation, Merson has opened up and claimed that he is expecting Grealish to leave Villa, he was quoted on the SUN: ‘The transfer window has been quite quiet so far but I still think there are some shocks to come – and Jack Grealish is one to keep an eye on.
‘He didn’t exactly set the Euros on fire because Gareth Southgate didn’t use him much.
‘But Manchester City know how good a player he is and the fact Aston Villa bought Emiliano Buendia says to me that he might go.
‘Buendia is a good playmaker but how do you get him and Grealish in the same team?
‘Why would Villa pay all that money for Buendia if Grealish is staying? It feels like they were buying a potential replacement.’
