Last year, Manchester United were interested in signing England international Jack Grealish, who was valued at £80million back then (Mirror Sport).
The attacker ended up signing a new contract worth £140,000-a-week (The Athletic) with Aston Villa and had a fantastic 2020-2021 campaign under the management of Dean Smith.
Transfer: Man Utd moved in to sign £278,000-a-week playmaker – Decision made
In May 2021, The Telegraph reported that Man Utd stars want Ole to hire the services of the Birmingham born star from the Villa Park outfit.
Recently, Old Trafford legend, Rio Ferdinand has described the 25-year-old as a ‘phenomenal’ player and backed him to agree a move to Man Utd this summer. The retired defender told FIVE Youtube channel:
“Does he (Grealish) improve every team in the Premier League? Yes he does, end of argument. He improves every team”.
“I would love him to join Manchester United”.
In the last campaign, the Aston Villa skipper started 25 games in all competitions and directly contributed in no fewer than 19 goals (7 goals and 12 assists). At the European Championships, he made 5 appearances (1 start) and provided 2 assists for the Three Lions.
The 12-capped international can effectively play in the central/attacking midfield and left wing positions. Fernandes is our main No.10 and Rashford is the first choice left winger. Do you think Man Utd should move to sign Grealish?
I’ve said without number that is one of the best players in English league if not the best. I suggested that Man U should have signed him first this season before any other player.
