Man United have been chasing Aston Villa’s Jack Grealish for some time now and the Red Devils might have already wrapped up the signing, that’s according to Tim Sherwood.
The playmaker is one of the biggest transfer targets for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Sherwood believes that moving to Old Trafford is the next big step for the 24-year-old attacking midfielder.
“I think Jack Grealish is a deal which is already done,” Sherwood told Premier League Productions, as quoted by Mirror.
“He’s a player that they [Manchester United] need. I honestly believe there’s only one club for Jack Grealish. “I don’t think he can stay at Aston Villa, he needs to progress his career. I think he signs for Manchester United.”
This will be music to the ears of the Manchester United fans since Jack Grealish is one of the most sought-after playmakers in the English Premier League this season.
But according to ex-United and Villa midfielder Eric Djemba-Djemba, the attacking midfielder could be nothing but a benchwarmer at Man United next season, now that Bruno Fernandes and Pogba have started clicking.
He said, as per the Daily Star: “I think that Fernandes and Pogba are both a lot better than him, so he would be joining as a substitute.
“He would struggle to start over (Marcus) Rashford, (Anthony) Martial or (Mason) Greenwood as well, but he would definitely be a good signing.
“I think that it’s more important to bring in a world-class striker though.”
Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba have been a revelation in midfield for Man United over the past couple of weeks and finally, the Red Devils are looking like a top-six side.
But the third midfielder’s position in the starting XI is still up for grabs so if Pogba can agree to shift a bit down the pitch then Jack Grealish could easily find a place.
Having said that the Villa man fully knows his worth so if he does decide to move out in the summer and join Manchester United then the 24-year-old will want guaranteed playing time at the club.
