Jack Grealish sale
Manchester United have received a blow in their pursuit of Aston Villa star Jack Grealish.
The Red Devils have made Grealish, 24, one of their priority signings this summer with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer eager to bolster his midfield ranks.
The threat of relegation and the financial impact of COVID-19 was expected to lower Grealish’s valuation.
But The Mirror claim that the combined £12billion wealth of owners Nassef Sawaris and Wes Edens will see Villa demand £80m for Grealish’s signature.

Emmanuel Dennis exit
Club Brugge striker Emmanuel Dennis looks set to leave the Belgian club in the upcoming transfer window.
And that’s good news for Premier League quartet Arsenal, Everton, Wolves and Newcastle who are known to be interested in the twice-capped Nigeria international.
Dennis, 22, has enjoyed a decent campaign for Club Brugge – scoring nine goals and providing two assists in 33 appearances – including a Champions League brace against Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.
“It is very likely that Dennis will leave,” Club Brugge manager Philippe Clement told La Dernière Heure. “He can also count on a lot of interest. It is the time for him to take a new step.”
The Daily Mail claim Dennis will cost roughly £22million and is ‘likely to sign a deal with Arsenal’.
Man Utd sign six
Manchester United have completed the signings of SIX youngsters from Fletcher Moss Rangers.
The Red Devils have done plenty of business with Fletcher Moss Rangers, who have produced talents such as Marcus Rashford, Jesse Lingard, Danny Welbeck and Wes Brown.
The MEN report that Cole Umebuani, Teddy Sherwood, Jaice Dore, Rafael Smith, Dane Mullings and Ka’eo Ingram will all join Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
“The boys are obviously a super talented bunch and to be able to sign for such big clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City is absolutely brilliant for the club & myself, more importantly the families and even more the boys,” Coach Remi De Jonge told MEN.

Bruno Fernandes/Kai Havertz
Liverpool require a player in the mould of Manchester United playmaker Bruno Fernandes.
That’s according to Jan Molby, who believes sought-after Bayer Leverkusen star Kai Havertz a very good option for Jurgen Klopp.
“It might hurt me to say this a little bit, but if you look at the impact Bruno Fernandes has had at Manchester United, now I would love Liverpool to sign that type of a midfield player,” Reds legend Molby told Hotel Tia.
“A midfield player that brings something different to what James Milner or Naby Keita or Georginio Wijnaldum or Jordan Henderson brings.
“Who would that be? We could go back to Germany, they play Monday night, Leverkusen, the young boy Kai Havertz looks a really, really good player.”

Nico Elvedi to Arsenal
Arsenal are interested in Borussia Monchengladbach defender Nico Elvedi.
Gunners manager Mikel Arteta is looking to strength his defence ahead of the 2020/2021 campaign and has identified Elvedi as an affordable option.
The 17-capped Switzerland international has made 158 appearances for the Bundesliga club and has only missed two fixtures in all competitions this campaign.
The 23-year-old centre-back’s contract is set to expire in June 2021 and French publication Le10sport think he would cost around £25million.
