There is a huge interest recently in the young Aston Villa captain, Jack Grealish. According to the Jack Grealish transfer odds, the two Manchester clubs are the front runners, but other Premier League clubs could also sign him. As Aston Villa are likely to be relegated at the end of the season, Grealish’s move should happen soon.
Jack Grealish joined Aston Villa at the age of only six and debuted in the club in 2014, after spending a few months on loan at Notts County. He started his first Premier League game in April 2015 against Queens Park Rangers, where he made a good impression on the experts. In the same year he played the full 90 minutes during the FA Cup final against Arsenal, which Villa lost 4-0. After their relegation in 2016, Aston Villa and Grealish spent three years in the Championship. But last season he had a big part as a captain to lead his team to a play-off place and finally back to the Premier League. This season he has 35 appearances and 9 goals in all tournaments. His performance got the attention of several big clubs who can sign him in the summer.
Jack Grealish transfer odds favor Manchester clubs to sign him
Online sportsbooks in the UK are giving the smallest odds, 2.60 at 1xBet for Manchester United to sign Grealish. United manager Ole Gunnar Solksjaer are hoping to improve his midfield and Grealish would fit into his plans perfectly. He has been a big fan of the English talent, who has been outstanding this season. But Villa’s asking price of £80 million might be a bit too much for even the Red Devils.
Manchester City are also interested in the midfielder. Especially after Leroy Sane’s departure to Bayern Munich was confirmed this week. Guardiola also needs someone to replace him, and Grealish can fill his empty place. He has similar strengths, like great running and dribbling skills which can be used on the wings. David Silva will also retire at the end of the season, so a young, creative player is very much needed at the club. The odds for City to be Grealish’s new club is 3.60 at 1xBet.
Other clubs with interest in Grealish
The Jack Grealish transfer odds also mention other Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool. Both London clubs have shown interest in Grealish two years ago, when Villa also reached the play-off. But then they lost it against Fulham, so the club had to stay in the Championship one more year. But the team’s captain has already played well in that season, gaining attention from several clubs.
Since then the former teammate of Grealish, Tammy Abraham has joined Chelsea. Surely he would be great to play with him again. But since 2018 his price tag has gone up. It is not so sure now that either Chelsea or Spurs will be still tempted to buy him. Online gambling sites in the UK are offering the odds of 15.00 for both clubs, also not giving too much chance for his move to London.
