Paul Pogba may leave, Jadon Sancho may not come but right now Manchester United fans want Jack Grealish. The last transfer window was spent to get Jadon Sancho to the club and that never succeeded.
From the start to the end of the transfer window, they were behind Jadon Sancho. The main reason for the obsession was because the club needed a more clinical and versatile right-winger.
Realizing that they did not get the player wanted, they signed two 18-year-olds in the dying hours of the window. Those youngsters are yet to play for the first team. With United pushing for the title this season, a top signing this transfer window will be crucial.
Grealish will be an ideal signing for Manchester United
Aston Villa were promoted from the Championship last season. They struggled and just managed to have enough points to avoid relegation. But Jack Grealish’ performance impressed everyone.
United wanted to buy him but felt that the £80 million price tag was just too much. He went on to pen a 5-year contract extraction. To support their star-player, Villa signed Ollie Watkins, Emiliano Martinez, Bertrand Traore, and Matty Cash. They even brought Ross Barkley on a season-long loan.
The result – Aston Villa has transformed. They are fighting for a spot in the top 6 right now. Jack Grealish has been phenomenal this season.
In their loss to United last week, fans noticed that Jack Grealish was the kind of player United were missing. He played in on the wings, supplied passes to the player in the box perfectly, and got back to the defense when needed.
At the moment, United do not have a player who consistently supplies crosses from the wing. That flaw leaves Antony Martial and Edinson Cavani short of chances. Aaron Wan-Bissaka, though unbeatable defensively, struggles to give forward momentum on his own.
Jack Grealish would be the perfect signing that could support Wan-Bissaka down the wing as well as supply Martial and Cavani throughout the game. Aston Villa are keen on keeping their main-man and dont plan to sell him for less than £100 million. But if Ed Woodward finally decides to listen to a manager, it could be one hell of a transfer.
