Aston Villa have set their price tag of £80m for Jack Grealish amid the transfer interest from Manchester United.

Grealish has been heavily linked with the Red Devils as the club boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is eager to improve the squad for the next season, after finishing 3rd in the Premier League and qualifying for the next term’s Champions League.

Now, according to The Daily Mirror, Villa owner Nassef Sawiris demands £80m for the club captain, which is equal to the amount United spent on Harry Maguire from Leicester City last year.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are the front-runners to sign Grealish despite the interest from Manchester City. However, the price tag set by Villa could force the Premier League side to change their plans on the midfielder.
