Jack Grealish transfer odds: Manchester United odds-on in places but Villa likely to keep star

Could a move to the Theatre of Dreams be on the cards?

Bookmakers believe that despite a spate of press reports, star midfielder Jack Grealish is more likely to stay for another year at Aston Villa.

It’s currently priced at 4/5 that Grealish stays at Villa Park after this summer, which is the equivalent of a 55.6% implied probability chance.

That’s despite Premier League royalty in Manchester United in close contention in the market, currently just odds against to sign the Englishman.

United are currently 6/4 with 888sport and that’s the stand out price. Two other firms are offering odds-on that Grealish is playing at Old Trafford next season.

Both Betfair and Paddy Power make it 4/5 that the future Three Lions star is involved in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad for the 2020/21 season.

Elsewhere, Leicester are surprise third favourites in the market at 4/1, followed by German side RB Leipzig at 9/1.

Spurs are as short as 7/2, although are available at the much longer price of 10/1, the same price as London rivals Chelsea.

Manchester City are 16/1, followed by Liverpool at 25/1. Everton and Arsenal round off the market at 33/1 shots.

Leading football stats providers, WhoScored.com revealed that Grealish is the most fouled player in Europe's top five leagues this season, by some distance (127; Zaha second with 94).

Only Kevin De Bruyne (72) has made more key passes from open play than Grealish (57) in the Premier League this season

Oddschecker spokesperson Callum Wilson: “Manchester United are still in need of some more midfield creativity, and Villa skipper Jack Grealish is certainly a player who can provide it.

Should Villa survive relegation, Grealish's acquisition will become a little harder, but if they do find themselves in the Championship next season, you feel United would be in a strong position to swoop in and allow the Midlanders to cash in.

Jack Grealish club after the summer transfer window:
Aston Villa - 4/6
Manchester United - 6/4
Leicester - 4/1
RB Leipzig - 9/1
Spurs - 10/1
Chelsea - 10/1
