Jack Grealish not a good fit for Manchester United - Andy Cole

Grealish not a good fit for Manchester United - Andy Cole

With Jack Grealish being linked with a £100million move to Manchester United, Former player Andy Cole thinks the Aston Villa captain is not a good fit for Manchester United and see no reason why they should sign him.

Manchester United are looking to strengthen their squad in the summer and there have been speculations 25-year-old Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is one of their primary targets.

With Paul Pogba likely not to renew his contract with the club, it would be necessary for Manchester United to find a replacement and one who is worthy of taking the club to the next level. United legend Rio Ferdinand thinks Grealish is the man in his recent comment and has advised his former club to go all out for him.

“I don’t care if [Paul] Pogba goes or not, Grealish is my man,' Ferdinand said

“I have known him since he was in his early teens. He came to my restaurant and I got him and his dad some tickets for a game.”

“He’s a great kid with a great family. He loves his football.

“What the young kids don’t see with Jack Grealish is the hunger and hard work behind closed doors – the attention to detail and the way he trains.

“He has changed his regime and looked at himself and asked what he can do better.”

However, while speaking on talkSPORT, Andy Cole doesn't agree with this as he thinks all position Jack Grealish can play in at the club is already occupied and It would be unwise to sign a player of that quality and have him sit on the bench.

“I think Grealish is a super player. I’m not going to sit here and say anything different,' Cole said

“But I’m looking at Manchester United’s midfield at the moment, where would you play him?

“You look at Bruno [Fernandes], the performances he’s putting in; that’s the position [Grealish] likes to play in.

“If you put him off the left, [Marcus] Rashford plays there… so where would you play him again?

“But I’m a mere mortal when it comes to things like this. I’m like everybody else from the outside looking in.”

Do you think Jack Grealish will be a good signing for Manchester United?
