Premier League star makes decision amidst interest from Manchester United, Barcelona

Manchester United have emerged as the preferred summer transfer for Jack Grealish, with the Aston Villa captain now open to an emotional departure from his boyhood club.

The midfielder is believed to have already agreed personal terms with United, who are prepared to give him far more than the £100,000-a-week wage which he now earns at Villa Park, and he is even thought to have started looking for a house in the local area in anticipation of a transfer. Two giants in Barca and Real Madrid are apparently interested in signing him.

United signed Bruno Fernandes for an initial £46.5 million ($60m) from Sporting Lisbon in January, but he is not the only player designated to improve the team's attacking options.

The midfielder will reportedly consider a move away from Villa Park at the end of the campaign, with his club expecting offers from some bigger clubs in England.

Injuries to key men have made the task even more challenging, but having a player with enough quality to attract interest from the likes of Barcelona could be the difference-maker.

According to Goal, the 24-year-old attacker is ready to join Man United and has already started looking for a house in anticipation that he'd move to Old Trafford.

Reports suggest that English champions Manchester City and their neighbours Manchester United are set to go to war over the signature of a Premier League star.

Goal add that formal transfer negotiations have not taken place just yet, but behind-the-scenes talks have given both United and Grealish confidence that a deal could be struck in the summer. It now remains to be seen if United can land Grealish in the summer, considering they ought to now be the favourites in the race to sign him.
