Jack Grealish set to remain at Villa Park for the time being

  • Jack Grealish has been linked to a move to Manchester United
  • If Aston Villa are relegated, the Red Devils will be in a strong position to get their man
  • Aston Villa are odds-on to retain Grealish’s services

 

 

Aston Villa Odds

Despite numerous press reports suggesting otherwise, midfield star Jack Grealish will likely remain with current employers Aston Villa for at least another twelve months. The bookies go odds-on at 4/5 that Grealish remains with the West Midlands side after the summer transfer window, thus implying a perceived probability of 55.6% that this proves to be the case.

 

Move to Old Trafford?

This comes as news of a potential move to Manchester United continues to circulate and the Red Devils are 6/4 to lure the Englishman to Old Trafford during the summer months, some firms going odds-on that they secure his signature in time for the start of next season.

Manchester United are certainly in need of some creativity in midfield and there can be little doubt that Jack Grealish could provide this. Nevertheless should Aston Villa manage to avoid dropping down into the Championship this term, the chances of their skipper moving elsewhere would be less likely although if they do get relegated, then United would be in a stronger position to get their man.

 

Foxes to come calling

Indeed both Paddy Power and Betfair go 4/6 that Grealish is part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad in the 2020/21 campaign while Leicester City are surprise third-favourites with some firms to sign the Three Lions star this summer at odds of 4/1, followed by Bundesliga title-hopefuls RB Leipzig at 9/1.

Spurs are as short as 7/2 with one firm although you can back them to get their man at odds of 10/1 with Paddy Power and Betfair, while Chelsea are a 7/1 shot to secure Grealish’s signature this summer.

Manchester City are a 14/1 punt ahead of 25/1 shots Liverpool while Everton and Arsenal round off the betting market at odds of 33/1 apiece.
