Transfer Talk: Manchester United, City to swoop for Villa’s Grealish

The winter transfer window is closed — but now it’s time to look ahead to the summer! Here are the new rumours floating around following the Jan. 31 deadline day.

Grealish open to Manchester move

According to The Telegraph, Aston Villa star Jack Grealish is now open to the idea of leaving the Midlands club during the summer transfer window.

Grealish has been on fire so far this season, establishing himself as one of the most in-form stars in the Premier League. In the past he’s been heavily linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur, but as of late, he’s stayed loyal to Villa.

The report indicates that he’s ready to take his game to the next level with Villa expecting to field offers from the likes of Manchester United and Manchester City in the summer.

Coutinho heading back to Premier League?

A series of Premier League clubs are interested in signing Philippe Coutinho this summer, Express Sport reports.

The Brazilian has failed to make the desired impact at Bayern Munich after an initially promising start, with the belief now being that a number of teams across English football’s top flight could be gearing up to make an offer. At the top of the list are Manchester United and Liverpool with Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham not being too far behind.

As previously noted, Barca are willing to take a big cut on the £142 million they initially paid for Coutinho when they brought him to the Nou Camp from Anfield.

PSG to look at Rose if Kurzawa departs

PSG look set to scout Newcastle United defender Danny Rose during his loan spell from Tottenham Hotspur, The Sun reports.

The expectation is that the French giants will go after the signing of the Englishman once his time with the Magpies comes to an end with Rose looking to prove himself after not being given much of a chance to do so, in his own words, during the end of his time with Spurs.

PSG were keen on Rose amid a prolonged winter saga with Layvin Kurzawa, who had been linked with Juventus and Arsenal. The French defender Kurzawa ended up staying in Paris but will be hot on the transfer list again in the summer.

And if Kurzawa does depart the Parc des Princes, then Rose could ensure that the French champions’ backline doesn’t skip too much of a beat.
