Jack Grealish told he would shine at Man Utd for one reason amid transfer rumours
Manchester United transfer target Jack Grealish will fit in well at Old Trafford because he has a “certain swagger” that will make him a hit at the club. That’s the opinion of his old manager, Tim Sherwood, who warned United that they will have to queue up to sign the playmaker.
Grealish has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.
The Villa captain is expected to leave at the end of the season if the club suffers relegation to the Championship.
Express Sport understands the 24-year-old has already started looking for houses in the Manchester area in anticipation of a deal.
The English ace was talked up by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer amid rumours United will make a move this summer, with the Norwegian praising his influence on the Villa side.
And Sherwood has explained why he believes Grealish would be the ideal player to fit into United’s side because he has a certain swagger about his game.
Grealish is known for his ability to draw others into the game and create chances for his team-mates, having provided six goals in 31 Premier League games this year.
Sherwood insisted that Grealish would thrive where other United players struggle, when teams sit back against them.
Speaking to The Mirror, he described the impact the 24-year-old forward would have on the team.
Sherwood said: “There will be a queue for Jack. If Villa stay up, it gives them a chance to keep him, but Manchester United is another step upwards.
“Only certain people can play for United and I have no doubt Jack Grealish is one of them.
“He has a special Man United swagger about him – he is what they need.
“They have found Fernandes, he has knitted players together and the whole team looks better.
“Matic now looks like the player who won two Premier Leagues, Pogba has come to life and if or when they introduce Jack Grealish, you are talking about another player who is special.
“They have Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford, Dan James and Anthony Martial’s pace, but Jack can take the ball in tight areas to give them something different.
“When teams sit back against United, that is when they struggle but it’s when Jack is at his best.
“He finds the combination to unlock the door.”
