Jack Grealish’s agent has insisted that Manchester United are not at the top of the list as he discusses the Aston Villa midfielder’s future.
Grealish has been linked with a move away from Villa Park after establishing himself as one of the Premier League’s best creative talents since the club’s promotion two seasons ago, with Manchester United understood to be admirers of the player’s signature.
Grealish has scored six goals and provided a further 10 assists in the Premier League this season, though has been sidelined in recent weeks with a shin injury.
The 25-year-old signed a new long-term contract to remain at Aston Villa amid speculation of a move last summer, though the playmaker’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, has admitted he is unsure over what the future holds.
Barnett did reveal there are ‘many clubs’ interested in signing the England international this summer, but says Manchester United are not ‘at the top of that list’.
Manchester City have also been linked with prising the midfielder away from Villa at the end of the season and Barnett believes a strong performance for England at this summer’s European Championship could spark increased interest.
“The truth is we don’t know [what will happen]. There are many clubs [interested] and I wouldn’t put Manchester United at the top of that [list],” Barnett told SNTV.
“But he could stay. He could stay as well so it’s a conversation the club, Aston Villa, will have with Jack and ourselves then we’ll see where we go.
“At the moment he is a Villa player and he has no thoughts about anything else.
“He could be a big star in the summer, he maybe should have been playing a little bit earlier for England.”
