Man Utd backed to finally sign £140,000-a-week ‘excellent’ playmaker


Manchester United heavily links with the signing of Aston Villa playmaker Grealish 

Manchester United was interested in signing Jack Grealish last summer, but they did not make an official bid, and Aston Villa ended up agreeing to a new contract worth £140,000 per week to keep him (The Athletic).

Now, Old Trafford legend Roy Keane has backed the club in their pursuit of the England international in order to improve their squad for next season.


Sky Sports News quoted the former Irish international as saying:

“I'd vote for Jack Grealish. United, in my opinion, is still missing the unique player. Grealish, I believe, would give them that, and I believe he would enjoy playing at Old Trafford.”

“He'd be adored by the fans. What I admire about Jack is his bravery on the football field. In tight situations, he still wants the ball. We've seen an improvement in his end product over the last year or so. He's a fantastic player.”

Keane also encouraged the Red Devils to sign Harry Kane to bolster their attack, claiming that the two attacking players would cost about £200 million.

Furthermore, the former captain suggests that Ole Gunnar Solskjkaer should improve the defense by signing a center half, but that improving the offense should be the top priority.

Grealish had the most goals and assists for Villa last season, and Dean Smith's team would have been relegated if it hadn't been for his heroics. Not to mention his sublime curling goal at Old Trafford last season.

In 22 league games this season, the 25-year-old playmaker scored six goals and got 12 assists before sustaining an injury that has held him out of the lineup since February 2021.

The Three Lions star will play anywhere in the defensive midfield and, if necessary, in the central midfield. Will Manchester United spend the money to finally sign him this summer, in your opinion?
