Man Utd handed Jack Grealish transfer boost as Aston Villa icon gives inside scoop | Football | Sport


Manchester United will sign Aston Villa playmaker Jack Grealish this summer, according to the star’s former team-mate Emile Heskey.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is desperate to bolster the offensive side of his squad when the transfer window reopens.

United have been linked with several high-profile targets but one name that continues to be touted for a move to Old Trafford is Grealish.

The 24-year-old has been one of the few shining lights as Villa engage in a relegation dogfight this season.

And Heskey is confident the midfielder will not be playing in claret and blue next year.

“There is every chance that Jack Grealish will join Man United in the summer,” Heskey told GentingBet.

“I don’t think that Jack will be at Villa come the end of the season.

“He’s done a phenomenal job for them since he started out at the club.

“I played with him when I was at Villa, he was only a young lad, he used to come and train with us – he was a phenomenal player even then and he has gone from strength to strength.

“He’s taken everything on his shoulders at a young age. He’s a very young captain but has been very positive with it.

“I think Jack Grealish would do well at Man United,” Heskey added.

“He’s a commanding midfielder and the kind that they’ve missed recently.

“They have it now in Fernandes but having another one alongside him who could drive from the midfield – that’s Jack all over.

“But Jack can play in several different positions very well. He would do very well at Manchester United.”
