Monday's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup: Jack Grealish, Stefan de Vrij, Dayot Upamecano

Sports Mole rounds up the latest transfer talk for Manchester United on Monday, November 16.

A frustrating summer transfer window has now closed with Manchester United having missed out on a number of their top targets, including Jadon Sancho.

The Red Devils were busy on deadline day, though, bringing in Edinson Cavani, Alex Telles and Facundo Pellistri, in addition to agreeing a deal to sign Amad Traore in January. Attention will now switch to other business they may do when the window reopens in the winter.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Old Trafford.

Monday morning's Manchester United transfer talk news roundup:

Jack Grealish 'becomes Manchester City's number one target'

Manchester City have reportedly identified Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish as their leading transfer target.

The 25-year-old was strongly linked with a move away from Villa Park over the summer, but he ultimately penned a new five-year contract with Dean Smith's side in September.

Grealish has been in brilliant form for his club during the 2020-21 campaign, contributing four goals and six assists in seven Premier League appearances.

According to the Daily Star, Pep Guardiola's side have been impressed by the attacker's development, and the England international has now become 'the main focus of City's attentions'.

Grealish, who is thought to be valued by Villa in excess of £70m, was believed to be a target for Manchester United over the summer after an impressive finish to the 2019-20 season.

The playmaker provided an assist in England's 3-0 win over the Republic of Ireland on Thursday night.

Liverpool, Manchester United, Arsenal 'suffer blow in Nicolo Barella pursuit'

Inter Milan have reportedly signalled that midfielder Nicolo Barella is not for sale at any price.

The 23-year-old, who moved to San Siro on a permanent deal over the summer after spending last season on loan from Cagliari, has provided four assists in 10 appearances for Antonio Conte's side this term.

Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal have all been credited with an interest in the Italy international, but according to Calciomercato, Inter are not prepared to sell him under any circumstances.

The report claims that the midfielder is one of three players at the club - the other two being Stefan de Vrij and Romelu Lukaku - not available for transfer.

Barella signed a four-year contract with Inter in September, but it is thought that the Italian giants are keen to tie him to another new deal to reflect his importance to the side.

Barcelona are also believed to be admirers of the former Cagliari youngster.
