Aston Villa are desperate to keep captain Jack Grealish at the club next season. The 24-year-old attacking midfielder is widely considered as the club’s best player and he has attracted the interest of Manchester United. Villa want to keep Grealish at Villa Park and have offered him a massive wage hike.
Aston Villa managed to avoid relegation last season and Grealish was one of their star performers. The club is ready to aim for a mid-table position next season and they want Grealish to lead them into the next season. The Villa captain is currently on a €80.000-a-week contract and the club is ready to offer him a massive new deal.
The Sun reports that the club and Grealish will be meeting somewhere next week to talk about fresh terms. The new deal will not only extend his current contract with two extra seasons, but it will also gift him a 50% wage increase to €120.000-a-week. That would instantly make him the best ever paid player int he history of Aston Villa.
