Gabby Agbonlahor claims Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish is too good for Manchester United amid transfer links with the Red Devils.
Grealish has been one of the Premier League’s standout performers this season, single-handedly giving Villa a chance of survival.
His form has led to strong interest from various clubs, with the Red Devils thought to be leading the chase for his signature this summer.
However, former Villa star Agbonlahor has urged Grealish to snub Old Trafford – because he could do better.
“I am not just saying this as I have played with him, but I honestly think he is the best attacking midfield option that England have got at this current time,” Agbonlahor told The Sun.
“That is why, when people say Grealish to Manchester United, he could do so much better than that.
“He could walk into any team in the world, even Barcelona or Juventus.
“For where Manchester United are now, he could go to better teams around the world, so he doesn’t need to limit himself to just United and focus on teams who are playing in the Champions League.
“The good thing about Jack is that he can run with and without the ball, play in different positions and score goals. He is the type of player that fans of football will go to a game to specifically watch him, even if they aren’t fans of Villa.”
