Manchester United are desperate to sign Aston Villa striker Jack Grealish as they are ready to pay a hefty sum of £70million for the forward, according to Daily Mirror.
The England U21 international has been spectacular for the Villans this season, racking up 26 league appearances and scoring seven goals.
His impressive form has sparked interest from a host of clubs but United look the most determined to land the 24-year-old.
Dean Smith’s side are in a better position to negotiate Grealish’s transfer fee since the player’s current contract does not have a buy-out clause.
Therefore, the Red Devils will have to put some real effort to bring the talented forward to Old Trafford.
The Manchester club successfully signed Bruno Fernandes from Sporting Lisbon in the January transfer window and the 25-year-old has made an impressive start at the club.
The Portugal international has grabbed two goals and created three assists in five Premier League games so far.
The former Udinese player played a key role in the recent Manchester Derby as he brilliantly set up Anthony Martial for the first goal that ended 2-0 in the favour of United.
The recent derby victory over Manchester City have moved them within three points distance of third-placed Chelsea.
The Red Devils’ boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was gushing in his praise for the team after the big victory.
“It’s a privilege to have players like this. The desire and work-rate, that’s what I think the fans love about these players.
To see the connections between the players, the team and the fans today – what an atmosphere.
At the end, seeing everyone in the stands. You turn around and you see Sir Alex [Ferguson] up there, he is proud and it’s a big moment for every one of us.”
