Aston Villa ace Jack Grealish ‘precisely the type of player’ Man Utd need

Jack Grealish put in an excellent performance for Aston Villa at the weekend as he helped his boyhood club earn a point away at Manchester United.

The Villa skipper scored an excellent goal early on in proceedings, before an own goal from Tom Heaton, a header from Victor Lindelof and a volley from Tyrone Mings meant the game ended 2-2.

The point leaves the Villains just three points above the relegation zone and the performances of Grealish for the rest of the season will be key if Dean Smith’s side are to avoid the drop.

However, they will also need to ensure they keep hold of him in January, with a whole host of clubs rumoured to be interested in his services.

Now, BBC Sport pundit Garth Crooks has suggested United should go out and sign the 24-year-old playmaker, saying: “After the attention paid to Jack Grealish by Manchester United, I think he is entitled to danger money!

“I can't remember when a team have inflicted so many tackles on a single player. I suppose Grealish should take that as a compliment.

“The Aston Villa captain scored a wonderful goal, had a fabulous game at Old Trafford and is precisely the sort of player United need to bolster their prospects.

“United fans are having to watch too many ordinary players while they are being asked to pay Champions League prices.”

Fellow BBC pundit Robbie Savage has also suggested Grealish could leave Villa Park, suggesting he could go for £80m.

“Aston Villa what are they going to achieve? Staying in the Premier League,” he said on BBC Radio 5 Live.

“If they achieve that it is going to be a great season for them, they are not winning a cup.

“If Manchester City, Spurs or Chelsea come with a massive offer for Jack Grealish, let’s say £80m, I think he’ll go.

“He’s far better than Aston Villa.”
