Manchester United are hoping to land Aston Villa skipper Jack Grealish this summer.

Jack Grealish has taken a step nearer joining Manchester United this summer after finding a house to buy in the North-West. The Aston Villa star - who started his search earlier this year - has told friends that he has now found somewhere.

Manchester United have been tracking the Aston Villa captain, and United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has got him at the top of his summer shopping list.

Solskjaer, who is unsure how much money he will have to spend this summer, wants him to link up with Bruno Fernandes in United’s midfield.

Grealish has shone this season and seems certain to leave Villa this summer even if they are successful in their battle against relegation from the Premier League.

But Villa are determined to get every penny of the £80million valuation that they have placed on his head and are refusing to even consider any lower offers for him.

United boss Solskjaer has been vocal on the club's transfer plans, insisting he will not by 'rotten apples'.

The Red Devils chief wants his players to reflect his personality.

"I did feel that I was professional and did feel privileged to play for Manchester United," Solskjaer said.

"I wouldn't be able to look at myself if I didn't know I'd given everything for my team-mates and my manager.

"That's what I also now look for in players that we sign or we bring up from the youth team. You have to have a good personality and that you are professional because one rotten apple in the basket will make the others rotten.

"So for me it's about building a team that will reflect me and my coaching staff's personalities and views. Of course there are standards because we want to win. We are in the business to win.

"But the first step to be a Manchester United player and person, you have to be humble enough to know you always have to work hard.

"Never give in and always do your best, 100 per cent effort is required every day and don't think you are better than you are.

"You still have to play with that confidence at the same time. It's a fine balance but that is what is going to make the difference when we want to get to the championship again that we want to win."
