- Villa are refusing to let their captain go for cheap even if they get relegated this season.
- They are said to value Grealish this high after witnessing United pay the same amount to sign Maguire last season.
- The Red Devils want to decrease the price but the Villains won’t be bullied into lowering their demands.
According to the Mirror, the Villains are refusing to sell their captain for cheap and have given an interesting example. They are said to have pointed towards Maguire being bought for a record £80m for fixing a same price for their captain.
The report suggests they will not change their minds about this in the transfer market. Villa’s wealthy owners give them enough incentive towards not getting bullied into selling Grealish for a cut-price to aid their finances.
This move is also said to have pointed at United, who are the most interested in signing their captain. The Red Devils will reportedly aim to lower the asking price and suggest the comparison with Maguire is unfair in the current market.
Ed Woodward has already made it clear that United won’t be able to spend massive fees in the summer. Grealish has been Villa’s best player this season, scoring 7 goals and providing 6 assists in a wonderful breakthrough campaign in the Premier League.
